Summary
This is the story of a hero, perhaps not a traditional hero. Charlotte Forten was an extraordinary young woman. As a part of President Lincoln's 'great experiment, ' she journeyed south to Sea Island, where she sought to give newly freed black children a decent education and the chance for a better life. In many ways the story is as remarkable as the lady who lived it
