Antebellum is the hard-hitting, gritty story of Da Nigga. From rap superstar to broken slave and back, Antebellum will have readers on the edge of their seats and keep them talking long after they put it down."-- Provided by publisher.

This was a book that I couldn't put down and it seemingly transformed me back in time with him. His awakening about himself was on point, period Excellent, excellent!

I really enjoyed this book. It was thought provoking and it reminded me personally not to take for granted what my ancestors have went though to obtain my freedom

;D I agree. This book is exciting and also informational. It gives a little example of what slaves, or just black people, in the past have to face. <3

This is a powerful book with an important message about freedom and identity. Many people today say they could never be slaves but rap star Da Nigga suffers through slavery and has scars on his back to prove it when he wakes up from his coma vowing never to be called "nigger" again This is not your common urban fiction.
