The New York Times published a book review Monday for Ben H. Winters’ new novel Underground Airlines. The story takes place among runaway slave catchers in an alternate-history United States, where the Civil War never happened and slavery was never abolished. The Times’ consensus? Winters was really “brave” to write about such a “risky” topic because he is a white man and his book is about black people and slavery. They failed to mention the black woman who did this in 1979.
