Challenging, insightful, and engrossing May 31, 2012

I found Inheriting the Trade to be an excellent read. It opened my eyes to issues about family, guilt, and the history of the slave trade in this country and around the world. I was intrigued by the complexity of the issues this family faced -- in dealing with their awakening understanding of their family history with the slave trade and simply (or not so simply) learning to be a family. I would recommend the book -- my church reading group is reading it now for discussion later this month.
