Misguided & Detrimental

History is made up of a collection of choices. The legacies of our choices remain with us today. This game on the other hand communicates that if slaves had just made the right choices, they too could have been free. It distorts and manipulates history and takes the responsibility of enalavement, abuse, and the opportunity for emancipation out of the hands of white officials- who were the ones with that power. Celebrating bravery and courage is important. Slaves who ran for their freedom were brave. Slaves who didn't were brave. This game sends inaccurate, damaging messages about how/why freedom was obtained.
