The Memoirs of a Modern Day Slave is a collection of entries written by author Jerard Shannon. In this book, the author gives his philosophies and details of his very own life as a civilian growing up in the inner city. Like many minorities growing up in an urban community, Jerard deals with the plights and challenges of a young black American. He hopes to challenge the mind of his readers by offering solutions on how to overcome the daily obstacles faced by today’s Afro American. Jerard does this by using his past experiences in which he promotes the importance of education, travel, and history. He also indulges in short fictional stories to help evoke the mind of the reader. Once you begin to read the Memoirs of a Modern Day Slave, Jerard asks that you remove the shackles from your brain. So you can, as he elegantly likes to put it, “Free your mind.”
