My Name Is Not Friday, by Jon Walter

0.00

In the waning days of the Civil War, Samuel is an orphaned, free-born African American, sold into slavery by a priest he believed was his protector. Renamed Friday, he’s bought by the master of a Mississippi cotton plantation, where he faces further injustices and brutality. But Samuel maintains both his faith and his iron grip on literacy—and his wish to be reunited with his younger brother. His fight for freedom begins but doesn’t end with the dangerous decision to teach his fellow slaves to read and write.
