In The Barber of Natchez, Edwin Adams Davis and William Ransom Hogan tell the remarkable story of William Johnson, a slave who rose to freedom, business success, and high community standing in the heart of the South-all before 1850. Emancipated as a young boy in 1820, Johnson became a barber's apprentice and later opened several profitable barber shops of his own.  Based on Johnson's 2,000 page diary, letters, and business records, this extraordinary biography reveals the complicated life of a freedman in Mississippi and a new perspective of antebellum Natchez.
