Praise for These Colors Don’t Run

“I love an incredible, unputdownable surprise of a book, and These Colors Don’t Run is it.”

* * *

From a young, fresh voice comes a novella about slavery and freedom: These Colors Don’t Run, the story of Samuel, an orphan and slave in 1830s Georgia. After Samuel’s mother Mary dies, he is sold to a new owner. On the journey to his master’s plantation, luck or the Lord intervenes, and fifteen-year-old Samuel and another boy escape into the woods while chained together. With the master’s hound at his heels, Samuel makes a desperate decision that will haunt him for the rest of his life: Is freedom worth killing for?

These Colors Don’t Run is an unflinching and unforgettable book. It wrestles with the founding myths and realities of our country: slavery, freedom, fatherhood, family, loss, faith, and the pursuit of the American Dream.
