9781886769083: Goree Island: Island of No Return

An estimated 20 million newly-enslaved Africans caught their last glimpse of Africa as they passed through Gore Island between the mid-1500s and the mid-1800s en route to the New World. In this novel, author Richard Gore relates how the native women of this island-the Signars-managed to survive and live well within the political, cultural and economic niche in which they were thrust as a result of their mixed lineage. With suspence and mystery, Goree tells a compelling story of survival and in so doing, unveils a nuance of African history that explores and helps identify the original empowerment of the Black woman.
