Dear Mr. Cottman, I just finished Shackles From the Deep, and I can’t wait to share it with my fellow teachers and students. I’ve never seen anything from this perspective before and it is much needed. I can’t imagine how you felt as you researched and followed the steps of this terrible part of history. I think it’s also important for my students to learn that there actually is a National Association of Black Scuba Divers, and zap, another stereotype smashed. I read with interest that you assisted with the development of theReal Pirates exhibit which I have enjoyed sharing with my classes. I was wondering if anyone has considered doing something along these lines with the artifacts from the Henrietta Marie?! This is a story that really needs to have the widest circulation possible, and I think it could have an incredible impact on students and adults alike. Again, thank you for this fascinating book and all of your hard work on the project, Carole Soden
