To Be A Slave by Julius Lester. What was it like to be a slave? Listen to the words and learn about the lives of countless slaves and ex-slaves, telling about their forced journey from Africa to the United States, their work in the fields and houses of their owners, and their passion for freedom. You will never look at life the same way again.
Product Description from Amazon
Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin. In the Deep South of the 1950s, journalist John Howard Griffin decided to cross the color line. Using medication that darkened his skin to deep brown, he exchanged his privileged life as a Southern white man for the disenfranchised world of an unemployed black man. His audacious, still chillingly relevant eyewitness history is a work about race and humanity-that in this new millennium still has something important to say to every American.
If you Twitter or use Face Book, MySpace, Live Journal or Blogger you can get an extra entry by writing your own Black History message/post and mention this contest. I'm only on Myspace and Blogger so it's difficult to get the word out.
The sharing of this contest will be very much appreciated!
Contest Ends on February 28th!!
Due to Broken Links This Contest will be extended until 3/5/10
