FREE KINDLE E-BOOK ALERT: Ten Generations of Bondage: Eleven Generations of Faith by Johari Ade
Ten Generations of Bondage: Eleven Generations of Faith by Johari Ade
This updated edition of Ten Generations of Bondage includes 66 more pages than the 2008 version and includes never before released information.
Ten Generations of Bondage is the true story about an African American family from enslavement to the 21st century. The Lewis-Green historical account begins in 1740 when a freeborn Violet sues her employer for unjustly keeping her in bondage. It continues to the year 2012 in the midst of the re-election campaign of Barack Obama, the first African American President. Although the family somehow manages to keep the faith over the years, the reader is taken through unimaginable atrocities that the family must face over the generations as they journey to the new millennium. The author proves that fact is stranger than fiction as the reader learns the story of Syntha, who was sold at least six times, Kitty, a proud African kidnapped from her homeland and arriving in America in chains and Tom, a Native American who was enslaved while attempting to rescue his wife from it. Even after "freedom" the family must face lynching, murder and many other challenges as they desperately attempt to reconnect their fragmented families. Ten Generations of Bondage keeps the reader engaged as the family navigates through the horrors of slavery, the challenges of emancipation, the degradation of Jim Crow, achievements of the civil rights movements, and the demoralization of modern day racism. Despite the degree or the type of bondage, the Lewis-Green family always manages to keep the faith. This is a must-read for genealogists, family historians, and anyone wishing to explore the richness of the African American Family.
