Linn was a slave in a very poor country, but she had the opportunity to live with another family. The family that took Linn and her family were the Thrashes. She changed from a poor slave to a happy girl. When she first stepped into America, she didn’t speak any English. A few years later, she won the spelling bee. This movie is called The Girl Who Spelled Freedom. She was a really good speller, and she became free.
