A time when even the major cities would be scarred by bodies left to hang from lampposts and fences.It was a time of anger and hate, of fear and confusion. Seeing it through the eyes of child helps bring that home to those of us who cant even imagine such a time, let alone a time so recently in our past.The years immediately following the American Civil War shaped the country and plotted the course of the future of the USA, and ultimately the world as we know it.

Yet we understand so little about it. This was the time when the colour of war changed from grey and blue to that of black and white.Its an important story told with a distinctive voice.Black Circus is about the violent birth of our modern times and the loss of innocence that came with it. It isnt the first page in a true Black History, but its an important chapter we should never forget.
