Re: "The Known World"

Amen Denise! Edward P. Jones wrote "The Known World", a fictional novel about a former slave who then owns slaves. It has won a book prize of some sort, don't ask me which one.
But even though I bought the book, I haven't had time to read it, because I am finding so many real life stories of FPOC's ,who owned slaves and willed them to their heirs.
Truth is stranger than fiction, any day.
