DEAR TEACHERS AND LIBRARIANS,
I have some exciting news to share. In connection with the release of my new book, IN THE SHADOW OF LIBERTY on September 20, 2016 (Holt Books for Young Readers), I will be offering a LIMITED NUMBER of FREE classroom Skypes to discuss the history of slavery, its role in the founding of our nation, and the American presidents who kept enslaved people as their legal property.
“By exploring the humanity of people held in bondage by early American presidents, Kenneth C. Davis once again turns American mythology into history. Read the book and be grateful.”
“This powerful book . . . will give you insights into our American heritage that you may not have considered before. I hope In the Shadow of Liberty will be widely read. It is important and timely.”
“This well-researched book offers a chronological history of slavery in America and features five enslaved people and the four U.S. presidents who owned them…. A valuable, broad perspective on slavery.”
