Product Description
After some narration to provide context, students read the undercover reporting of an abolitionist who attended "The Weeping Time", a massive slave auction which tore African American families apart in order to pay the debts of a degenerate white man who had fallen into debt drinking and gambling. I do this as a read aloud with the class, and then they journal their feelings and questions for 10 minutes. It is a powerful true story.
