From the Eye of Kate Henry: Memoirs of a Negro Slave Woman brings all kinds of voices in the society, the highlights of both highs and lows in the community, and most importantly the objective truth about the societal norms. The author opens his life to each reader as each tale jotted on this wonderful work passed on to him from his grandfather who was very proud of his history as a slave. The book opens each reader’s imagination in every flip of the page.
