“We believe the one who has the power. He is the one who gets to write the story. So when you study history, you must always ask yourself, Whose story am I missing? Whose voice was suppressed so that this voice could come forth? Once you have figured that out, you must find that story too. From there, you begin to get a clearer, yet still imperfect, picture.” - Yaw
A historical fiction novel that will take you through the rich cultures of Asante-Fante, and how the British turn them to be slaves of their own land.
A tale of two sisters following their eight generations descendants, from Ghana's Gold Coast to American slavery in the south; from Civil War to the birth of Jazz. Their stories gave me a different perspective of how racism is deeply rooted and its influence to human behaviour; British Slavery is Black Slavery.
