Emancipated in 1820, Johnson became a barbers apprentice and later opened several profitable barber shops of his own. The authors explore Johnsons family, work, and social life, as well as his murder and the trial of the man accused of shooting him. More than the story of one individual, the narrative offers compelling insight into the southern code of honor, the apprentice system, and the ownership of slaves by free blacks.Hide synopsis
