Text Structure

The author of To be a Slave, Julius Lester, used first and third person in the book so we could interpret the story from more than one perspective. Its better this way because you get more than one persons thoughts on the situation.

Reading Response

In the book the slaves looked forward to Christmas. I look forward to Christmas every year also because it’s one of the few days I get to spend time with my entire family.

The slaves in the book sang when they were going though something and it would cheer them up. Although I cant sing, I still sing to cheer myself up when I'm not having the best day.

The slaves were given the surname of their owners just like us. We are given the same last name as our parents instead of our owners.
