It was everywhere. You couldn’t talk about the revolution without using the word freedom in the same breath. But Gideon Jackson knew that freedom meant something different if your skin was black. Fast’s fictional account of the post Civil War era takes us into the life of Gideon Jackson, a black man, newly freed, and determined to make a difference.

If you haven't ever read Freedom Road, give yourself a treat. It's an incredible true story - one of Howard Fast's best. Fast is wonderful to listen too. He was a storyteller and it is easy to listen to his books.
