Who was Dred Scott, other than one of America`s most famous slaves? History cannot answer that question because no one bothered to record even the most basic details about the man at the center of one of the country`s most pivotal Supreme Court rulings; one that pitched the United States into civil war. Speak Right On, a work of historical fiction, depicts Dred Scott as an orphaned, destitute, illiterate slave whose strength of character, artful storytelling, and keen insights protect his family and result in ultimate victory. He is a man who journeys to define his own truth, who cries out to share his story with all who will listen. That is his freedom, and he requires no court to help him find it.
