Waterstones Says

The perfect introduction to the history of slavery for both children and adults, Unspoken is a deftly handled reference book that presents the chilling facts in an accessible manner whilst never shying away from the horrors of the trade in human beings.

How do you tell a story that starts in Africa and ends in horror? About strength and pride and refusing to be broken? One that still hurts and still loves?

A powerfully moving, poetic exploration of the story of slavery: from Africa to the tall ships, from back-breaking work in a strange land to resilience and eventual emancipation, Kwame Alexander tells the story that's hard to hear. Told through the lens of a teacher speaking to their young pupils, and in multiple art styles from award-winning artist and sculptor Dare Coulter, the story of slavery becomes one that you can tell with the bravery to lift your voice.

A must-read for all children and adults alike, and the perfect companion to Kwame Alexander's award-winning picture book The Undefeated.
