Let’s teach our children about real American heroes like Robert Smalls!

Robert was a mixed man. (That's right, his FATHER was his owner). He planned to plot his escape after being unable to afford $800 for his, his wife, and his children's freedom.

BOOK REVIEW: IF WHITE PEOPLE WERE SLAVES BY JERRY MALACHI

I promised myself I would get back to reading this year. It's how I used to spend some self-care "me" time. I bought this book from Amazon yesterday and stayed up all night reading it.
