This is definitely a must read book if you are looking to expand your knowledge of slavery in the USA. Smith has carefully researched and documented the facts regarding slavery as it was rather than the pasteurized version we received in school. To quote the author:

"It must be a collective endeavor to learn, confront and reckon with the story of slavery and how it has shaped the world we live in today."

Once we embrace our past we can move forward. An excellent and thoughtful book.
