Grandson of a Slave (Soft Cover) by Samuel Carter
Life is a gift from God …
Every person on this earth has
the right to choose their own destiny,
but we must have the
will and the determination
to fight for what is ours.
Growing up as one of fifteen children to black sharecroppers in the Jim Crow South, Samuel was raised to fight for what he believed in. From an early age, he was taught to speak out against injustice, follow his dreams, trust in God, and never forget his roots. From the Alabama plantation where his grandfather Nute was a slave, to riding the family wagon to church on Sundays, to working his way through the ranks as a factory employee in Niagara Falls, first-time author Samuel Carter shares his life story and family history with honesty and deep poignance. At times heart wrenching, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Grandson of a Slave teaches readers that while systemic racism is still a global institution, hope, love, and perseverance will always overcome.
