My Recommendation

Lest We Forget gives a raw view of the history of enslaved Africans and the processes they endured to become slaves. This book fills in the many holes left by historians that wouldn't allow the clear facts of the many atrocities committed to be passed down through history. 

This book takes you on a journey from pre-colonization to slave-trade to civil war to emancipation and to the civil rights era. These are the true accounts of the toll of 300+ years of stolen history and identity. 

This was a hard read, but it was also very enlightening. After reading this, I can't help but wonder at what affluence would be flowing from Africa instead of the poverty and destruction left in the wake of slave trade and European greed. 

I highly recommend this read to anyone.
