As we talk more about Kindred, the more I think about Dana and Rufus the more I do see the time traveling. For me, I don’t see a time machine however in this book. I’m making a connection with a time machine and Rufus. Rufus is bringing Dana back every time he needs her. With this, Dana gets to see this slavery that is happening. We can’t see first hand how Dana is experiencing this.
As Rufus grows older, he seems to beat on Dana a little more and abuses her. But with Dana being married to Kevin, who is this white man, can’t have that much of experience that Dana goes through being back in this time period of slavery. It is kind of horrifying to read through this.
