The Water Dancer - Ta-Nehisi Coates

How does Coates always gut punch you while reading? This book follows a young boy who is a slave in VA.

 

We find out about how his father is the master of the house and how his mother is sold. Now he (Hiram) is being tasked to be the manservant of his half brother while being told he is lucky he is not being sold since any coloreds with brains are worth more. Shudder. Thanking God again I was born when I was not that things are great, but considering the alternative, I am grateful.
