Celia, a slave


Celia-A-Slave

 

Celia was an ordinary slave–until she struck back at her abusive master and became the defendant in a landmark trial that threatened to undermine the very foundations of the South’s “Peculiar Institution.”

This story takes place in 1855, Calloway county, Missouri.

It’s about a slave named Celia in the american slavery crisis. for a time she was framed for the murder of her master but the people found out it wasn’t her. The court found that Ceila was the witness of a crime.  Ceila met other slaves and their masters’.

I kind of liked the book and I would give it 2/5 (i didn’t like it but i didn’t hate it.) i didn’t like it because the subject of the story made me mad but it told a great story.
