I hope I’m not procrastinating! but I’ll have more next week!
nearer my freedom: The Interesting Life of Olaudah Equiano by Himself is the first person account of a young African boy who was kidnapped and caught up in the slave trade. It was made especially accessible by its modern interpreters Monica Edinger and Lesley Younge (Zest Books/Lerner Publishing Group, 2023) through their found poems. The form and the content are interesting and inspiring.
