assessment

I picked this book because a couple of years ago i i herd of him on the news. I think this a good book it tells u about some history. How some blacks fought for there freedom. how many died doing it due to protesting. my favorite part is when the blacks went to the police station withe out the passes. If they didn't carry them they would get locked up and they cant holed thousands of people in jail. so soon they would have to cancel that law. I like this book because it has a lot of action and conflict. So the people fight for what is right. I would recommend this book to a friend.
