Last night, I finally read the book, SHOW WAY. I loved the illustrations and the writing; Jacqueline's voice rang true.
All that said, I read the book with mixed feelings. Recently, I learned that slaves probably did not create quilts with secret messages. According to many historians, no evidence exists to prove it so. At first I thought, "Well of course historians don't know, it was meant to be a secret." But to be honest, I have no idea. Probably is more myth than actuality.
While reading SHOW WAY, I was distracted with that question lingering in the air. I felt like I was being sold a bill of goods, as they say.
