Beloved 4

Sixty million or more...

That's who the book is dedicated to. The sixty million plus slaves who were affected by the slave trading that took place in our country. I often wonder what people of the past would say about the books written about them. Would the story of Beloved hit too close to home for them to read? Or, would this story only scrape the tip of iceberg of what they struggled through? I hope that Morrison's story and others like it will help us to remember the horrors of our past so that we don't repeat our most indefensible mistakes.
