"We can't judge the past by today's beliefs"
Sarah Debro, once a slave in North Carolina, put it bluntly: "My folks was shame that niggers ever was slaves". Sarah's folks are not alone. Why bring it up? Why talk about slavery? The answer is Sarah.
To ignore her life is to say she never was. It would deny Sarah's humanity, it was denied in slavery time but it must not be denied now.
