Redemption Songs: Suing for Freedom before Dred Scott

All the specific details at times become a bit overwhelming (a "cast of characters" might have helped) and the rhetorical tone at times a bit annoying (plus "Dred Scott" did not "end" the songs as is clarified on the final page). But, there is a lot of powerful history here and overall it's a worthwhile read. Also, it comes in more digestible installments then her "Mrs. Dred Scott," which by necessity is often not about her specifically anyway.
