all through his existence Banneker was once bothered that each one blacks weren't unfastened. And so, in 1791, he wrote to Secretary of nation Thomas Jefferson, who had signed the assertion of Independence. Banneker attacked the establishment of slavery and dared to name Jefferson a hypocrite for possessing slaves. Jefferson replied. this is often the tale of Benjamin Banneker--his technology, his politics, his morals, and his impressive correspondence with Thomas Jefferson. Illustrated in full-page scratchboard and oil work by means of Caldecott Honor artist Brian Pinkney.
