A shorter version of Haggadah for the Liberated Lamb. Good for inter-generation groups. Incorporates poignant questions about the nature of slavery of both animals and humans as, for example, in this poem by Paul Lawrence Dunbar, the son of two runaway slaves:
I know what the caged bird feels, alas!
when the sun is bright on the upland slopes;
When the wind stirs soft through springing grass,
and the river flows like a stream of glass;
When the first bird sings and the first bud opes,
and the faint perfume from its chalice steals --
I know what the caged bird feels!
