This is a partial biography of John Parker. John Parker was a slave who was taken from his mother and sold at age eight. He then bought his freedom and became a successful businessman. He help many slaves escape to reach freedom. This story is a scenario on how he helped a family escape. I think this is a great story for children to learn about the underground railroad and slavery.
