    Book Description:
    In this fascinating inquiry into the African Diaspora, Caryl Phillips embarks on a soul-wrenching journey to the three major ports of the transatlantic slave trade.

    Juxtaposing stories of the past with his own present-day experiences, Phillips combines his remarkable skills as a travel essayist with an astute understanding of history. From an West African businessman’s interactions with white Methodists in nineteenth-century Liverpool to an eighteenth-century African minister’s complicity in the selling of slaves to a fearless white judge’s crusade for racial justice in 1940s Charleston, South Carolina, Phillips reveals the global the impact of being uprooted from one’s home through resonant, powerful narratives.
