My academic inquiry began with the question: How was slavery depicted to children in the past? Previously, I have researched depictions of slavery in modern picture books for children and was dismayed at my findings. The progression to the past seemed excellent in enhancing my knowledge of racism in children’s literature. The large collection of UTC in Nesbitt made for a perfect fit in examining the storytelling process. Most modern works struggle with distilling heavy topics such as slavery to children while also preserving the truth of the injustice. More often than not, racist propaganda is created in the process.
