This is a free study guide to A Hope in the Unseen written by Ron Suskind. In A Hope of the Unseen, the reader feels the residual struggle of African Americans to cast off the legacy of slavery, which is still operating de facto in many ways. Cedric comes from a literal war zone where he is confined and surrounded by hatred, despair, and death. Getting out of the ghetto, as his ancestors tried to get out of slavery, takes supernatural will and effort. Four centuries of history are not so easily cast off.
