From Yesterday to Tomorrow
The author, a descendant of slaves, provides a dramatized history of the survival journey of West African slaves, brought to America during the 1600–1800s. It is a chronological history of the endurance of captured West African black natives bought or kidnapped from villages and subjected to the initial dehumanization process as slaves—like cattle, being herded through the various dangerous and treacherous African terrains—the nightmare of the middle crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, the auctioning process as plantation owner's property, and surviving plantation life.
How initially did freedom not mean being free? This the cost of a movement to legitimized true freedom that resulted in a cultural shift to being true Americans and the legacy of a family of surviving descendants that reflects this determination by consistently challenging future generations to continue to strive for self-determination as proud Americans.
