To Be a Slave - Julius Lester
This was a disturbing book, as it's a compilation of first-hand accounts of what slavery in the U.S. was like, from the words of the slaves themselves. It's a difficult read but an important one. Most countries have things in the past that are embarrassing now, in the early 21st century, but it's important for us to understand how things used to be so we can attempt to keep improving.
