About the Author
What People are Saying About This
Sean Kelley successfully explores a single ship and its forced migration of Africans to South Carolina as a means to understand slavery and the reduction of Africans to a life of bondage in North America. The book adds to the tradition of works that attempt to break the silence about the individual lived experiences of 'slaves' who came from Africa. The scholarship here is impeccable.--Paul Lovejoy, York University
