Product Description


This is the harrowing, emotional story of Olaudah Equiano, The Father of Black Literature, who, in 1789, set out to end the slave trade. The Life of Olaudah Equiano is curriculum-linked both in the United States (Grade 8) and in Britain (History key stage 3 and Universities: The Enlightenment).

'Mind Olaudah!' she screamed, 'Mind boy. Mind!' 'Aaaahhhh!' The gate had fallen on him! But - but - this was no gate; this was alive and breathing harshly! Olaudah himself had had all the breath knocked from his body. He was flat on his stomach. His stick-like arms were being held down by arms almost as thick as tree trunks...The Red Men! The traders from the distant Big River...'I shall get the ugly girl' grunted the woman, kicking up the sand as she landed. Chika gulped, then turned and darted between the huts. The woman shot after her like an arrow from Olaudah's bow, grabbed her neck and hurled her into the sand...Chika writhed like fury as the sick-making rag was stuffed into her mouth; but then, with a horrified choking, she shuddered and stopped.
