Get your work done, fix your eyes down, listen, learn. Nathaniel doesn’t want to move to England with his master’s family, leaving behind his mother and sister on the Jamaican plantation. But then he remembers what the gardener, Old Thomas, said – once a slave sets foot on English soil, they’re free. Perhaps he can earn his fortune and buy his family’s freedom, too! When Nat arrives in London, he soon discovers that Old Thomas was wrong. Nat refuses to live like a caged bird and seizes the first opportunity to escape. Alone on the streets of London, he hears the story of a nightmare ship, The Zong, where the crew murdered 133 men, women, and children. Now, those responsible face a trial. Will the world continue to turn a blind eye to the horrors of slavery? And can Nat really evade his master’s forever? An action-packed and pacey first-hand account of slavery in Britain.
