Children’s novelist Laurie Halse Anderson has just come out with her long-awaited final volume in her “Seeds of America” trilogy, which follows three young slaves during the American Revolution. In the book, "Ashes," white colonists everywhere can be heard talking about liberty and freedom – just not for African Americans. Laurie traces our nation’s deep history of racial injustice to its origins in 1776.
