Georgia, USA in 2020 boasts a skyline of futuristic American Dream coming to life in heritage, culture, and architecture. This state is now famous for its dazzling Centennial Olympic Park, World of Coca-Cola, and the breathtaking Georgia Aquarium which is home to over 120,000 marine animals right in the middle of an urban landscape.
When one gets caught up in the middle of these all, one can forget to muse about what the place used to be before any of these developments were even conceived. To the average American, little is known about its dark past when colored men and women broke their backs working for plantation “Masters” and their children ran on the green hills of Georgia ignorant to the savagery going on around them in their everyday lives—the savagery of slavery. During such time, in the years 1750-1865, slavery was a normal practice and in fact, that was how the rich plantation owners maintained good businesses and lavish lifestyles.
“Good Lil’ Boys and Girls from Down Home in Georgia” is a book representing the daily struggles in the simple and somehow happy lives that the children of Georgia had during the era of Plantation Slavery. Written by Sharon Hunt, who is one of the most remarkable writers from Historically Black College and Universities or HBCU, this written account is painted with heartfelt honesty and sharp accuracy.
If you are one of those folks who are interested in being well-versed with American History or you simply enjoy a good piece of literature that has a touch of enlightenment or knowledge in it, then Sharon Hunt’s “Good Lil’ Boys and Girls from Down Home in Georgia” will be an enjoyable read for you.
