Description: No matter how much one has read about the degradation of slavery, the images and the words in this book will have a firm impact on its audience. A three-dimensional interactive book, it contains reproductions of photographs and documents from the Black Holocaust Exhibit that was conceived and developed by the author. By combining highly effective and readable text with photographs, news clipping, drawings, and facsimiles of documents, Thomas shares with her readers the details of virtually every aspect of slave life from the horrors of slave ships to the dangers of trying to escape. Throughout the assortment of pop-out and pull-out replicas, points are raised that will lead to classroom discussion. With its inclusion of documents such as a receipt for a slave woman or the freedom papers of a former slave, those discussions will be given an added dimension. A.

Ashay says, Lest We Forget is a masterpiece, and should be included in all school and home library collections. Because it is interactive and it was created from authentic documents from the African American holocaust, has made this book a powerful educational tool. Let us never forget our Ancestors and this part of our history. Let us not forget from where we came. Ashe Ashe!
