Each year America makes us remember about 9/11 the tragically hijacked plane that crashed into The World Trade Center and over 2500 people died in the crashes. Oddly enough America never seems to mention the also tragic and gruesome practice known as slavery.
Slavery is being given restricted freedom and being given exhausting labor. African-Americans were tortured, raped, and even killed. Slavery started in 1619 when twenty African-Americans were brought to an English colony in Virginia.
I have been reading a book named Elijah Of Buxton it is about a young boy named Elijah who is the first child in town to be born free he is known by all in Buxton as a fragile little boy. But all of that changes once a former slave steals Elijah’s Friend’s money that was going to be used to buy his family out of captivity. Elijah then goes on his perilous journey to try to save his friends family but he is deeply frightened about returning back home where the slaves are.
