Review
The United States National Slavery Museum has not yet been completed in Fredericksburg, VA, but this book is a testament to what it can contribute to our understanding of the history of slavery in North America, the predominant factor in the great African diaspora. The book displays the artifacts, images, and documents that the museum itself will be able to display in the future. Editor Carter (research scholar, Georgetown Univ.: Africana Woman: Her Story Through Time ) brings a full historical perspective to the book, with reflections by notable figures, e.g., Nelson Mandela, former governor of Virginia L. Douglas Wilder, journalist Juan Williams, and Bill Cosby, accompanying the images in a manner much like a documentary film that seeks to keep its viewers engaged by means of spectacle and famous names. But the real stars of this book are the words of enslaved men and women, abolitionists, and newspaper editorialists. Their stories are powerfully presented here in word and image and grab the heart. The serious scholar of African American history will be familiar with most of this material, but this will be popular with students and general readers.—Suzanne Lay, Perry H.S., GA --Suzanne Lay (Reviewed March 15, 2009) (Library Journal, vol 134, issue 5, p112)
