Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The following is the explanation behind the dedication, "To the UnknownChild."  Many years ago on a summer day I was driving along aresidential street in Modesto, CA.  I saw a group of young girls, ages12 to 14, standing on the sidewalk. Suddenly a young black girl brokeaway from the group and began a stumbling run away from them.  She wassobbing as only a heart-broken child can. The other girls shoutedhateful slurs at the fleeing figure. I yelled at them to stop which they did. (It was a time when parents parented rather than phoning theirlawyer.)

I watched as the little girl disappeared around the farcorner of the block but I've never forgotten her, her pain and herexpulsion from the group.  She became the "unknown child."

Manyyears later, while waiting in an office for an appointment, I picked upthe entertainment section of the local paper. There was a one column,two inch article about a play that had opened. It was unusual in that it was written by black people, acted by black people and purported toshine a light on slavery.  The article quoted the opening line. "Beforethe coming of the white man all the tribes in Africa lived in peace andharmony."  I was enough of an historian to know a false statement when I saw it but it got me to digging even deeper into the history ofslavery.  

The more I dug, the more interesting facts I found. Here are just two of them

When looking at the world history of slavery, there were far more non-blacks enslaved then there were blacks.

Muslim slavers have been taking black slaves out of Africa for over twothousand years....  far longer than white slavers operated.

After about three years of research, The Slavers became a novel.

I hope you enjoy it.
