Charlotte L. Forten’s Broken Heart: The Trauma of America’s Northern Racism

This book is about Charlotte L. Forten
"Charlotte L. Forten’s Broken Heart: The Trauma of America’s Northern Racism" delves into the life of Charlotte L. Forten, a pioneering African American educator and abolitionist from a prominent Philadelphia family. Despite her free status and elevated social standing, Forten faced relentless racial discrimination in the North, a region often mistakenly romanticized as devoid of racism. Through her poignant journal entries, Forten provides a unique insight into the psyche of a black woman navigating the oppressive societal structures of 19th-century America. Published on September 12, 2022, this book not only chronicles her contributions to the education of freed slaves during the Civil War but also highlights her literary prowess and humanist crusades. Ideal for high school readers, this narrative invites a deeper understanding of racial justice and educational equity, encouraging a critical reflection on the complexities of racism beyond the conventional North-South dichotomy. How does our understanding of history change when we consider voices like Forten's?
