To Be a Slave

by Julius Lester


Quick Overview

The words of former slaves are accompanied by Lester's historical commentary and the powerful, muted paintings by Feelings. This Newbery Honor Book has been a touchstone in children's literature for over 30 years. Illustrations.


The actual words of slaves and former slaves are interwoven with Julius Lester's historical commentary and Tom Feelings's dramatic paintings, bringing to life what it meant to be someone else's property -- to be a slave, no better than a table or chair. Size 0.47" H x 8.22" L x 5.52" W, 160 pages
