Reviews

An autobiography. NOT a fictional account


(5 stars)

This book was a real story, by a real ex-slave. I note that not once did he call for reparation; simply an opportunity to peacefully coexist in America. The reading was excellent. I urge you to listen to this book and share it with others.
