What a life. Ona’s story gives glimpses into the founding of our country and the compromises made to get there, often at the expense of the enslaved. Great source documents and a compelling pace. An excellent read on a difficult subject

I had no idea that any of what was told in this book happened. This is what needs to be taught in schools. Ona had the most amazing courage in the face of unbelievable circumstances. It's incredibly sad to see how ingrained slavery is in the history of the US. And it shows why we have so many problems facing people of color today.
