US HISTORY

In what ways could African Americans empower themselves in the antebellum United States?

I know that they used autobiographies...but I am not even sure if I understand the question!!!

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "antebellum United States African Americans" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
