One of the most profound and powerful narratives that I have ever read. It should be read not only by African Americans, but by all races an ethnicities. Truly a powerful piece of nonfiction!
12 Years A Slave
Why this book is not mandatory reading in High Schools is beyond me. This is such an important subject that does not get the proper attention it deserves.
Well written and compelling. A must read if ever there was one.
12 years a slave.
Not since Roots have I read such a sad story of slavery. Inclusion of farming methods and other dated facts just adds to the book's mastery. A must read for every educated person.
