About the Book

The ‘Good Li’L Boys and Girls from Down Home in Georgia’ Book is compiled of the ex-slaves’ explanations of their lives as children on the plantations during the times of slavery in Georgia from 1750-1865. In the author’s opinion, the ex-slaves stories can be compared to some of the stories in the Bible. All of the slaves called the plantation owners ‘Master”. The author wrote the book to serve as a history book for all ethnic groups, who want to learn more about slavery. African-Americans were freed from slavery after the Civil War in 1865.
