"After reading Haunted by Slavery, it has become even more clear to me that [Midlo Hall] explicitly embodies what longtime executive editor of Ebony magazine and popular historian Lerone Bennett Jr. often referred to as 'living history' in reference to those freedom fighters in black history who shared their life stories and varied experiences with upcoming generations. [Midlo] Hall is a quintessential witness-participant of close to a century of American life and history." --Pero G. Dagbovie, from the Foreword
