Abstract:

The book tells the true stories of four Africans who were victims of one of the greatest human rights abuses of all time, the African slave trade. The four men, Sancho, Gronniosaw, Equiano and Cugoano, gave us "first hand accounts" of life as a slave and freed man in the 18th century. We also hear their personal views and reflections on a range of topics including Christianity, God, humanity and the slave trade itself. This book reveals the black africans as visionaries, and highlights their often underestimated contribution toward the abolition of slavery. It also explores how these stories resonate with contemporary issues of identity, culture and racism.
