really liked it

Berlin does an excellent job distinguishing the complexities of the first two hundred years of slavery in North America. By dividing the book by both generations and geography, Berlin brings a unique voice to each section of his work.

I will defiantly consult this again as reference material if I need to look up a specific group/time period, but the organization of the book does not naturally lend itself for a great cover to cover read.
