6 ComparisonI thought the story as going to be about Nelson Mandela and slavery in Africa , but this story only deals with slavery. In the story a boy thinks his father is leaving his mom because of some reason, but actually he is been taken away to be a slave. Later on in life he understands what really happened that day and learns that his father did not leave his mom for his own reasons.
