Illustrated. First Edition. Very rare!! Early photographs in the book are of the author's ancestors. Out of their 16 great-grandparents, 11 were African Americans and lived during the time of the Armistad. The last six photographs are of the author's grand-parents: the first generation after slavery. The book pays homage to Adams and his legal battle involving the famous Armistad case and his other anti-slavery efforts. Signed presentation from both authors on the title page, to relatives: "To Prentice, Audry & Family- Best wishes! Love! Kathy & John Favor."
