內容簡介

內容簡介 The year 1619 slavery was enacted with 13 colonies. Tribes were violently taken from their homes in Africa and transported to European Countries by water where they were chained together in the lower level of a boat. Africans were then auctioned off at the pier. Slave owners purchased the slaves, chained them together and walked them back to their place of residence. Slave handlers rode on horses on the side of 5 or 6 slaves chained together in hand and foot shackles as they walked them up to the plantation house where they were used as forced labor. Over 400 hundred years later, the same scenario is still being played out; 5 or 6 African American, all chained together in hand and foot shackles being walked into a Prison with several correctional officers walking on the side and back of them. Two people who grew up in the City of Milwaukee could no longer stomach what was happening to their beloved city. They accessed their means and pulled together their resources and transformed a city that was in destitute into a beautiful city. After reading One Hundred and Seventy-Nine Degrees, The Aftermath, ask yourself, did the means justify the ends.
