pp. 32-85

Stories of escape and flight from circum-Atlantic enslavement are numerous. Too numerous, in fact, to recount here.

Winds of 53 mph crashed against the lakeshore of Chicago for five days when October 29, 1929, arrived. It was fateful and fatal, indeed, but not simply for Chicago residents. Wall Street also felt its own tumult that day, the day marking Black Tuesday, the beginning of the Great Depression. ...
