A truly amazing and awful story about the good of some people and the evil of others.

This is a different kind of poetry that I was not aware of. Historical poetry. Taking a historical event and turning in into poetry. The images that go along with the poems hit me in ways that I was not expecting. This book starts with a historical introduction before the poets come in and tell the story in verse. I was moved by the entire story that I could not read the author's comments at the end of the book. Kudos to Monica at the Glenville Public Library for putting this book out for Black History Month. This is a overlooked story that needs to be told over and over again.

Historical account of 1832 east coast school for girls taught by a Black woman. Of course they were all run out of town. Powerful story of interest to those studying history of abolition movement and civil rights.
