An African-American son a university professor, is left a legacy by his father " ... some facts and a cross on a map and an attic with a lamp in it. The fact was that English traders had filled their ships for profit with Africans chained in rows. The fact was that white masters bought and sold their slaves, generation after generation. The fact was that the very idea of escape was hard to hold onto for long enough. The unravelling of his father's legacy is the ending of the story. Finding a way to tell it is the beginning of change. " -- from the rear panel blurb. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 440 pages..
