Synopsis: When Randy Schell made his first trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica, he discovered Sam Sharpe Square. His research revealed that Sam Sharpe was an educated slave, Baptist deacon, and valiant leader whose message of passive resistance spread throughout the island and culminated in Jamaican slaves refusing to work on Christmas Day 1831. When the peaceful protest turned into a bloody rebellion, hundreds of slaves were executed, including Sharpe. Undeniably, it was because of Sam Sharpe that, only three years after he was hanged, slavery was finally abolished in Jamaica. For Randy Schell, each subsequent visit to the island heightened his fascination with Sharpe?s story. The result is Freedom?s Shadow, a touching, carefully documented, and very compelling fictionalized account of one man?s heroism and the sacrifices he made to bring freedom to his people. This book will appeal to readers who love history, stories of social reform, or a compelling read about heroism and unparalleled courage.
About the Author: Retired business executive, scuba expert, and accomplished oil painter, Randall Schell resides in New Mexico.
