This is a book about how it felt to be a slave. It is told in the words of men and women who lived through slavery. Their stories are stories of long ago. But the power of their emotions will go on forever.

Very good compilation of memories of actual slaves, StoryCorp style organized with Lester's own skilled narration. Much of it was not new to me, but would be to an audience of 7th-12th grade students. It's like Roots for people who can't handle Roots (me). It didn't make me sick or cry like Paulsen's Night John or Roots, but I did learn about the actual origins of American slavery a bit better. The first few chapters and the last chapter had the newest information (for me). There was a bit of baby murder to traumatize and upset, but no rape/breeding in this collection (why, I don't know). In all, I think it's appropriate for middle school. ( )

Interesting, informative and very sad. Where Booker T. Washington had a hopeful outlook for the future, this author seems mired in the bitterness of the past, and who can blame him? Washington was a part of slavery and overcame it, Lester is writing in the 1960's, some of the most trying modern times for race relations.

Lester has edited together many interviews of those who lived through slavery. He inserts much of his voice into the book, telling us how to interpret what we read and how to feel about it. I don't know, but I suspect he was very selective over which stories to include, ending with a bitter hopeless rant. To what end? I understand the desperation, but I continue to have hope. A fool's hope maybe, but it is mine. ( )

The ancedtry of any black American can be traced to a bill of sale and no further. In many instances even that cannot be done. Such is true of part of my family. This book is dedicated to the memory of my great-grandparents: Elvira Smith, Maggie Carson, Slaves in Arkansas, and Square and Angeline Lester, Austin and Sylvia Jones, Slaves in Mississippi, and to those whose names are now unknown. I never knew them, but I am proud to be one of their descendants. I hope that I may be worthy of them, their strength, and their courage.
