BREAKING THE CHAINS African-American Slave Resistance

by | Read by Peter Francis James

Young Adult • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1990

William Katz’s book provides a scholarly, detailed presentation of African-American resistance to slavery from the time of the first exploration of the Americas to post Civil War America. In spite of Peter James's straightforward and, at times, unruffled reading, the listener comes away with an overwhelming sense of horror. This recording could be an important component of history curriculum for middle and high school students. If selected segments were paired with factual information, historical fiction, and firsthand slave accounts in the voices of African-Americans, the impact would be great.
