Book Review: Black by Joan Vassar 

Black is the name given to Nathaniel Hope Turner, son of the infamous Nat Turner, in order to hide his identity. In helping slaves to gain their freedom, Black joins forces with Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, John Brown and several other men from the Turner Plantation. He keeps returning, in hopes of getting Mama to agree to leave. Many of the newly freed slaves end up at Freedom Independence in Canada. However, there are those who seek them out, in order to either kill them or return them to slavery. 
In the midst of this turmoil, Black falls in love with Sunny (also from the Turner Plantation) and introduces her to a whole new world. 

Black (Book 1 of the Black series) was well written and the characterization was on point. This is my first book by @joan.vassar, but definitely not my last. I immediately downloaded book two (Elbert) and look forward to the newly released “Emancipation of James.” I highly recommend this book (especially if you like Historical Fiction) and give it 💎💎💎💎💎.
