“At last Henry had a birthday - March 30, 1849, his first day of freedom! And from that day on, he also had a middle name. Everyone called him Henry “BOX“ Brown.“
I would use this book in my classroom to explain the Underground Railroad and slavery and everyone's fight for freedom, no matter how crazy the ways were. The book is easy to comprehend but it's an emotional piece because of how real and accurate the situation was.
