This acclaimed black history novel examines the tale of a slave owner in Virginia, himself a black man and a former slave, and what happens to his “property” when he dies.

When Henry Townsend, the former slave, decides to become a slave owner himself, he intends on being a gentle one. He wants his slaves to enjoy short workdays and free time with one another. However, Townsend discovers the folly in that line of thinking. Over time, he begins to rule with an iron fist in an attempt to maintain order and authority.

Jones’ work earned him a Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 2004, in addition to other literary citations. It is an examination of the depths of moral depravity that the institution of slavery brought to men. Read it and gather the insight that can only come from seeing the past through the eyes of those that lived it.
