Overview

The story of Charleston is a history of old America. Her harbors were the most prosperous. Her residents were wealthy. Her slaves were bountiful. Three out of four Africans brought to America came through her ports. By 1709 Blacks were the majority in Charleston. African culture, food and dialect are still alive through the Gullah people today.

Discover Charleston through the eyes of a slave named Amadu. A Slave Story opens with a ten-year-old girl named Simone learning history from her teacher Mrs. Singleton. Simone is eager to teach others what she learns. She narrates about the history of enslavement and introduces Amadu, an African warrior captured by slave hunters and forced into a life of enslavement. His story begins in the early 1700’s on an old slave ship heading to the New World. Through narration, Amadu describes his home, work, other slaves and plantation life.
