    A leave in plain site book Full of information and great history This was a gift from the Juneteenth Celebration at The Hartford Wadsworth Atheneum a few years back at a Gala event It also came with the book Breaking Barriers Celebrating 27 Years of the Aetna African American History Calendar.

    I ve started to pull books for February s African American History displays and discovered this absolute gem It is a highly interactive non fiction book guiding young readers through the history of slavery using images and primary source documents Every page has an interactive, tactile, or pull out element The tone of the text is serious, but still really approachable something that is extremely important when writing for young audiences Ms Thomas has found a way to make this difficult but very necessary subject engaging and accessible.

    Very good book with documents and pictures about African American history Very informative and thought provoking Thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for the arc of this book in return for my honest review Receiving the book in this manner had no bearing on my review.

    This book changed my outlook on what our people had to endure I knew about slavery true enough, but touching the pages, reading the documents and visualizing the tramatic events broke my heart I have a great appreciation for the sufferings of previous generations of African Americans This is one of those books you don t handle often, you just pass by it and touch it.

    Unfortunatly many of the interactive ephemera was missing from this library edition Who steals stuff out of a library book Probably the same kind of people who would have slaves Heartbreaking, unflinching look at the barbaric practice of slavery.

    The history of slavery in America is presented in heart breaking detail through the use of photographs and other primary source documents Pop up and other interactive elements allow the reader to wander through the book as if visiting a museum.
