The Friends of Dean Park, Inc. was pleased to have Rosa A. Sanders at the Black History Reception that it sponsored at the Winston County Library. Rosa Sanders was present signing her book A Journey without A Destination which was published November 2019. It can be found on Amazon. According to a preview by the author, the book is about three sisters who lived in South Carolina who were sold as slaves to a master in Mississippi. They were able to escape from him, ride a ferry as Stole-Away, swim the Mississippi River, hide in the woods and make it to a place that they had never heard of. They worked in fields with other slaves until they were able to travel to Mississippi. They married and started a community of their own which is now called the Hathorn Community in Noxapater, MS. Her book can be found on Amazon. For more information, please contact the Winston County Library.
