In Search of the Promised Land.
The thesis of the book “In Search of Promised Land" revolves around slavery. The book explains how African-Americans were treated like slaves. This slavery took place during the Civil Wars in the US. The black Americans were mistreated and enslaved based on racism. Franklin argues persuasively since the main topic talked about searching for a Promised Land so that black Americans could be freed from this slavery. However, Franklin experienced various challenges when gathering the information that he would use to write his book 'In Search of the Promised Land.'
