Ashay says, "Some people think our people didnt fight back, but they did and this book tells some of their stories. Also excellent illustrations by Shane Evans. I reccommend this book when parents ask for books that speak our history and enslavement here in America. Must have for both the library and classroom. Also look for Doreen Rappaport other historical books, Free At Last and Aint Nobody Gonna Turn Me Around. Teach!"
