I am a descendant of family members buried at Freedmen's Cemetery and being involved in providing family information, I thought I had an idea what to expect of the book. I didn't. This book is visual, it's poetic, it doesn't hide the truth. It is not just about my family but about all of us who share the Cemetery in common so all of the history is part of the whole. This book is must reading for those searching. It provides insight into research methodology . The spoken word is powerful and leaves nothing to the imagination about what this period was like - the struggle for some only to end in death and desecration and then celebration. The narratives should change minds about what slavery, the Civil War and the aftermath were like. It is also a must read for those interested in this period in history and for all determined not to ever return to the inhumanity and brutality of that time.
