From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up-The McKissacks explore slave revolts and the men and women who led them, weaving a tale of courage and defiance in the face of tremendous odds. Readers learn not only about Nat Turner and Denmark Vesey, but also about Cato, Gabriel Prosser, the maroons, and the relationship between escaped slaves and Seminole Indians. The activities of abolitionists are described as well. The authors' careful research, sensitivity, and evenhanded style reveal a sad, yet inspiring story of the will to be free. Black-and-white reproductions of paintings, drawings, and documents appear throughout. A fine contribution to a growing body of literature about the African American experience.?Carol Jones Collins, Montclair Kimberley Academy, NJ

Captures the true meaning of fighting for liberty and "by any means necessary"......unfortunately, the fight continues from shackles of economic, educational, social inequalities cast upon people of color in American-,most sadly the Black Americans who built this country and paved the way for all who came after to enjoy an economically booming country financed through their blood, sweat, and tears.....also known as slavery
This book is brief as it covers 320 years or so and many different incidents. It serves as a foundation for future research on the people featured. Because this covers a wide range of people, it is not possible for the book to go into great depth and that is fine. A well done book. Worth the read. I learned a great deal.
during the early colonial period and afterward. The authors
depict the Stone Rebellion at the 1739 site. Osceola refused to turn black allies over to their slaveholders. Toussaint is
considered the Father of Haiti. The work explains the tactical
retaliation necessary to unbind the shackles of slavery.
Famous Americans; such as Richard Allen are depicted. He was
the first Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
This book would be very valuable for any student project on
the rebellions against slavery in the colonies up through the
period of the Civil War and beyond.
