‘How the Word is Passed’ explores slavery and how it shaped America

"How the Word is Passed" by Clint Smith.

I have spent hundreds of hours during my life wondering why people believe what they do.

Is it because we do not know the facts? Is it because there are no facts from the past from which we can learn? Or is it because persuasive adults have buried the truth in lies?

Clint Smith also has many of the same “wonders,” but he narrowed them down to a manageable subject in his book, “How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America.” 

Throughout his life, Smith wondered why we have so many versions of the history of slavery in the United States. Shucks, we have wildly disparate reasons why we fought the Civil War. Is it because we lack facts upon which to render judgment?
