To Be a Slave
The words of black men and women who had themselves been slaves are here, accompanied by Julius Lester's historical commentary and the powerful, muted paintings of Tom Feelings. To Be a Slave, a Newbery Honor Book, has been a touchstone in children's literature for over 30 years.

very good book many quotes from actual slaves 4 stars
This book does not "sugarcoat" anything about Slavery. If you want to know anything about slavery at all, or what it was like, read this book and put your family in place of the slaves.
