To be a Slave Response

I believe that some evidence given in this book are truth and fair. Julius Lester gives citations after every interview that he got from the library of congress. The library of congress is in itself a very trustworthy source. I believe that the part about keeping the slave in the galley is true. Ball pp. 159-160. Some parts are true and some parts are bias. The conditions of the journey were not good but I am sure that there would be a reason into bringing them. They say in the book that some conditions weren't as bad as the others. Some wanted to go back, Charley Williams Botkin pp.110. Picture by
