Letter to Author regarding FREE GLOBALLY!
“Your book is amazing! What an excellent Storyteller you are. I love the Southern favor. It so reminds me of my family in Carolina. God has truly blessed you with many talents. This story of a people’s journey from place to place in search of freedom brings to my mind the fact that African Americans have always been World Citizens. As stated in the Bahá’í Scriptures, “The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens”, and as foretold in all the sacred scriptures of the past, now is the time for humanity to live in unity". Your indepth research yet occasional threads of humor in weaving this story of determination and nobility make for an enjoyable, educational read of the struggle, fortitude, love and hope of a mighty people. Yes, we are indeed Free Globally.”
