African Town Book Review
“African Town ” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. Before starting the reading or downloading, here is the summary of the book that you can read. In 1860, long after the United States outlawed the importation of enslaved laborers, 110 men, women, and children from Benin and Nigeria were captured and brought to Mobile, Alabama, aboard a ship called Clotilda. Their journey includes the savage Middle Passage and being hidden in the swamplands along the Alabama River before being secretly parceled out to various plantations, where they made desperate attempts to maintain both their culture and also fit into the place of captivity to which they’d been delivered. At the end of the Civil War, the survivors created a community for themselves they called African Town, which still exists to this day. Told in 14 distinct voices, including that of the ship that brought them to the American shores and the founder of African Town, this powerfully affecting historical novel-in-verse recreates a pivotal moment in US and world history, the impacts of which we still feel today.
Brief Summary African Town by Charles Waters
This book took me a whole month to read, one of the books I have used most time to read, I’m not exactly sure why it took me so long, but it was definitely not because it was a bad book, or a bad written book, it was written very different from what I’m used to, but at the same time very beautifully. Every chapter of a different persons was written to fit that person’s personality and way of thinking and speaking.This book was not easy to read, it was hard to read about how homesick they felt, how ambushed they felt. It is a book I feel is important to read, because it takes the point of view from all perspectives, and most of all from the Africans. They need the attention to tell their story. I know it isn’t a non-fiction book, but the book has done a lot of research to back these stories up, and I appreciate and love that.
