And when you come home, read "Slaves in the Family" by Edward Ball.
Anyone who loves Charleston (or wants to really understand some of the complicated history of the American slave trade in world history) should read this. I thought my eyes were pretty open, but they were not until I read that, and the next time I visited, there were some pretty big epiphanies.
I am not a songwriter, but there are several stories told in that book that made me want to write them, so I could hear the likes of you all sing them.
