Horn Book Review

Tom Feelingss haunting wordless visual history of the Middle Passage (the leg of the transatlantic slave trade that carried captured Africans to the Americas) has been updated with new textual material. In addition to Feelingss original introduction to the 1995 volume (rev. 3/96), this edition includes two additional introductions by artist Kadir Nelson ?and by Feelingss son Kamilias well ?as a historical note by scholar and historian of the African diaspora Sylviane A. Diouf. The visceral impact of Feelingss ghostly, ghastly (in Nelsons words) black-and-white images, which ?unflinchingly chronicle the horrors of the Middle Passage, is as powerful as ever. A necessary and an unforgettable book; now back on shelves and in our collective consciousness more than twenty years after its original publication. martha v. parravano (c) Copyright 2018.
