Answering the Cry for Freedom

Announcements/RE: Answering the Cry for Freedom
I bought this book and was excited to include it in our school, but I will be returning the book after reading just the introduction. Maybe the stories are good, but the introduction was included as part of the curriculum. Here is a quote from the introduction: "In 1775, when the American revolution began and colonist took up arms to free themselves from British rule, slavery existed in everyone of the 13 colonies. In 1776 when the founding father signed the declaration of independence, declaring that "all men" were entitled to "life liberty and the pursuit of happiness," they didn't really mean everyone." [hmph] Huh. I got on here to see if other parents had felt the same way I did, and learned from another gal that this book was recommended by the Zinn education project,  which after looking into that organization, really confirms the bias I was feeling this book has.
