Elijah of Buxton de Christopher Paul Curtis es una galardonada novela de ficción histórica contada desde la perspectiva de Elijah Freeman, de 11 años, el primer niño que nació libre en el asentamiento de Buxton en Canadá. Buxton es un lugar real colonizado por afroamericanos que habían escapado de los horrores de la esclavitud en Estados Unidos.

  • THE VALUE OF COMMUNITY
  • "One helping one, to uplift all."
  • HOPE AND DETERMINATION
  • Buxton children are taught all subjects, which is in stark contrast to their parents' childhoods in slavery. Adults take reading classes at night. As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
  • The community supports each other emotionally and the town thrives because everyone pitches in to help. If Elijah goes fishing, he always brings extra for his neighbors. Every visit ends with “tell your Ma I asked about her!" The care and support of one another is the backbone of the town.
  • Buxton residents have escaped unspeakable horrors and are determined to persevere through hard work and commitment to the community. Mr. Leroy is an example of Buxton's remarkable capacity for hope and determination. He works tirelessly to be able to one day rescue his family from slavery.
