www.BookShorts.com - I've Got a Home in Glory Land by author Karolyn Smardz-Frost is the epic story and first entirely original biography of a fugitive slave couple since the 19th century.BookShorts attended the event celebrating its publication at St. Lawrence Hall in Toronto. Author / Teacher / Activist AUSTIN CLARKE provided clear insight for the significant contribution Smardz Frost has made to history. The book is the fascinating and absorbing story of Thornton and Lucie Blackburn, two fugitive slaves from Kentucky who made a daring daylight escape from slavery in 1831. It is both a devastating portrait of the conditions and the politics of slavery and an inspiring account of two intrepid fugitive slaves whose flight to freedom changed US and Canadian history.(c) BookShorts Moving Stories.TV; Book Published by Thomas Allen Publishers and available now at ChaptersIndigo.ca
