Fingerprints Of Previous Owners - Rebecca Entel, Ron Butler, Cherise Boothe, Robin Miles

This is beautifully written but very hard to take. I've just been through a chapter that finally gives a view (albeit an owners view) of plantation life. The details of the way in which the slaves were treated, punished, used, sold are not new to me but this book makes them real. It's the difference between reading a map and walking the land.


Take this in, what it means, what the wealthy English did, for decades, to hundreds of thousands of people, and tell me again that we need a statue to Colston in Bristol.
