Addy Walker, Her Life, Her Time
Addy Walker was discriminated. That means that she was seperated from the rest of the crowd, because she was black. I think Addy has an intersesting life. What about you?
Master Stevens kept Addy and her family for slaves. Slaves and maids are two very different things. Maids want to do their job for money. Slaves don’t get money, and they’re forced to do it. It’s sad 😦
Addy soon escapes Master Stevens with her mother in 1864. They escaped through the ocean, her mother couldn’t swim. Addy had learned how to swim, so she was good to go. She had to help mother get through the hard waves, and they are free. They lose the rest of their family though. Addy learns what it means to be free and she learns to read and write and make new friends. Still she has hope faith through these hard times, and keeps her dreams alive.
Addy has had a lot of hard times in her life. And sad times. I think Addy has an intersesting life. What about you?
Once again we would like you to thank American girl collecting to lend us these pictures for our posts.
