About the Book

Take a journey through the stories of eleven generations of ancestors and descendants of Cuff Condol/Congdon, a Native American slave. The children and grandchildren of Cuff spread across the landscape of Connecticut into New York and Ohio. This is a chronicle of their fight for liberty and citizenship in America. The web of kinship is expansive. They define what nations, communities, groups, and families that they belong to. Their voices and words are utilized in an effort to allow them to speak to us. It is an American story including African, European, Jewish, and Chinese American ancestors. Genealogy, history, and social activism all play a role in their telling of this tale. So, come and take the journey!
