This book is wonderful to read. It captures the reader in the true story of a family’s movement through slavery to freedom, and their struggles for freedom of future generations.
To get beyond 1870 Census "Brick Wall" of African American research is a tremendous accomplishment - so few can do this. Through very difficult research, the author has been successful in proving and documenting her family’s stories and events of the time. A true labor of love.
The book is truly an inspiration for all to read. Congratulations!

About The Author
While researching my family tree, I realized that my ancestors lived in a society that was engulfed with violence. I knew then, that I had to understand historical violence. In 2005, I returned to college. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Human Services, major: Community Violence Prevention and Intervention. With my specialized degree, I have acquired a profound understanding of individual, community and historical violence.
Human Property Hanging in the Family Tree is oral family history supported by documents, of the life and times of Mariah and her family. Mariah was born a slave, witnessed a slave massacre, and fought the KKK. Mariah’s departure to transcend from human property to a human being was met with opposition, as she and her family channeled through the violent Reconstruction Era. As the matriarch of her family, Mariah was unwavering as she attempted to sail through the iniquitous institution of inequality. She remained steadfast in her hope of attaining the American dream.
