Days of Jubilee: The End of Slavery in the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The McKissacks introduce young readers to the pivotal events leading up to and including the long awaited and glorious Days of Jubilee.

For two and a half centuries African-American slaves sang about, prayed for, and waited on their long anticipated freedom — a day of Jubilee. But freedom didn't come for slaves at the same time. DAYS OF JUBILEE chronicles the various stages of U.S. emancipation beginning with those slaves who were freed for their service during the Revolutionary War, to those who were freed by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution. Using slave narratives, letters, diaries, military orders, and other documents, the McKissacks invite young readers to celebrate coming freedom and the Days of Jubilee.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 129-130) and index.

Synopsis:

One of the most important events in our history is the end of slavery in the United States. But there is not one single day when all the slaves were freed. These are the days of Jubilee. In this spirit-stirring journey, illustrated with stunning black-and-white photographs, the McKissacks draw from slave narratives, letters, and diaries to document the days and weeks leading to freedom. History books have told only a small part of the story of freedom. In this inspiring account for middle-grade readers, the award-winning McKissacks passionately set the record straight.
