About the Book
True Democracy: One Family’s Story is a work of historical fiction concerning three generations of Americans: Ann Ethel Henry, her daughter Beulah Henry Anderson, and Beulah’s children. Beulah is born into slavery, but attains her freedom. Beulah watches her family grow, unhindered by racism or prejudice. Politics, industry, sports, music, art, and literature benefit from the contributions of every American. And with its people unified in support of this exceptional democratic experiment, the United States becomes a global powerhouse. This fictional story, set in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, explores the possibility of true democracy for all Americans, where, through legislation and education, our country operates without prejudice, race discrimination, or bias. Through the eyes of a uniquely American family, we see a people working together to build a truly United States of America, embracing its color, culture, and diversity in one great nation.
