Abstract

Book Notice for Slavery in Zion: A Documentary and Genealogical History of Black Lives and Black Servitude in Utah Territory, 1847–1862 by Amy Tanner Thiriot. The reviewer notes that: "Thiriot’s work goes beyond a mere historical account; it serves as a comprehensive documentation of the lived experiences of Black individuals and their roles in Utah Territory. By combing through a wide array of primary sources—including journals, court records, and personal accounts—the author sheds light on the struggles, resilience, and agency of Black people during this era."
