Overview

Slavery. The word that no one wants to talk about. The word that immediately causes acrimony and resentment when spoken. A word that echoes all of the demonic darkness of mankind. A word that causes the blood of some to boil and causes others to hang their head in shame. A word, seven letters, that embodies all the vileness that one man can pour on another. A word that is grossly misunderstood.
Slavery. A contentious subject since the very beginning of mankind. Slavery. A remote, dispassionate word that brings to the mind forbidden images. Images of others working, suffering. Images of things happening to other people. Things that are bad and that are reprehensible.
Slavery. Just a concept.
But not to the slave.
Slavery. A seven letter word for hell.
Slavery in the United States and Around The World takes an open and unbiased look at the most dreadful sin of man; a sin perpetuated on every race and nationality by every race and nationality. A sin that for centuries not only accepted by religious leaders, but actively supported and encouraged by the religious leaders. Author J. Jackson Owensby, a descendent of slaves, shines a light on little-known facts about the history of slavery and those who were at one time both master and slave. Owensby also exposes the existence of slavery in the 21st century.

    Uh...

    This book is over 1000 pages long. I fear I will never finish reading it. It's organized and written in a scholarly manner, carefully researched, but....over a thousand pages long
