"An excellent account of the many ways in which slaves participated in bringing down the greatest evil in our nation's history
"A powerful statement about the horrors of this institution, its traumatic effect on those who endured it, and the remarkable ability of the human spirit to face such adversity with courage and defiance.
"Rappaport creates an affecting multitextured chronicle of slavery in America. The symbolic and the realistic converge effectively in Evans's often emotionally charged oil paintings, which capture both the pain and the triumph at the heart of this trenchant compilation.
"Paired with exquisitely soulful paintings, these real-life accounts will enlighten and engross."
