8. Epilogue

I do miss Andre, and my daughter. Andre named her Hope, because he had faith that everything would change one day.

It did. Slavery ended. Andre never lived to see the day that everyone walked out of their slave cabins and was free. Hope lived though. She was very old when slavery was abolished. She didn’t live long after, and I cried the day my baby girl left Earth. I was sad that she had died, but happy that she joined me and Andre. And even today, I think about what my people has been through, and what I’ve done. But even though white people have never treated us right, I still have hope for what is to come.
