Lizzie’s Story: A Slave Family’s Journey to Freedom
"The book’s namesake, Boswell’s paternal grandmother, Lizzie Brent Sheff Davis Cannon (1870-1965), was born in Leesburg, Kentucky, on the same plantation that had purchased and put her maternal grandparents to work as slaves after their transportation from Africa in 1850."

I don't doubt slavery in Boswell's ancestory but I do find the importation of her grandparents from Africa in 1850 highly suspect. I would hate to see a repeat of "Roots."
