No More! : Ever since the first boatload of human cargo sailed to the New World, African Americans waged a courageous struggle for dignity and freedom from slavery. Using true accounts, author Doreen Rappaport puts readers in the shoes of eleven extraordinary individuals and documents the many forms of slave resistance: subversion, uprisings, escape, poetry, religion, and song. Dramatic paintings by Shane W. Evans illustrate the faces and illuminate the souls of these courageous individuals. Together, artist and author have created a compelling portrait of bravery, hope, and determination. They show us, in startling words and images, what it means to be free, what it is to be human.
