Caleb McDaniel - Sweet Taste of Liberty

A True Story of Slavery and Restitution in America, a History Book Talk & Signing

Caleb McDaniel is an author and Associate Professor of History at Rice University. He will discuss and sign Sweet Taste of Liberty: A True Story of Slavery and Restitution in America ($27.95 Oxford University Press), the unforgettable saga of one enslaved woman's fight for justice--and reparations.

McDaniel's book is an epic tale of a black woman who survived slavery twice and who achieved more than merely a moral victory over one of her oppressors. Above all, Sweet Taste of Liberty is a portrait of an extraordinary individual as well as a searing reminder of the lessons of her story, which establish beyond question the connections between slavery and the prison system that rose in its place.
