These dramatic blends of fact and fiction expose the horrors of slavery. The story is told by three narrators. Ama, old and blind, wants to tell her life story to her son Kwame, also known as Zacharias, so that he can pass it on to his infant daughter. Kwame, raised by a Brazilian sugar plantation owner, Senhora Miranda Williams, who has promised him his freedom, reacts to his mother's story from his unique point of view. The third narrator is Josef, an elderly slave who acts as boatman on the plantation and who knows part of Ama's history.
The action begins when year-old Nandzi is stolen from her Ghanaian village by mounted raiders from another community. After a forced march with other slaves, she arrives at the Asante kingdom where she is given as a gift to the Asante queen mother. Renamed Ama, Nandzi enjoys a degree of freedom and is treated decently until court politics lead to her being sold, this time to the Dutch governor of the notorious slave port of Elmina.
The governor makes her his mistress and teaches her to read and write. After his death, she is sold and shipped to America, enduring a terrible trans-Atlantic voyage on a slave ship ironically named Love of Liberty. When the slaves rise in revolt, Ama admires the courage of a freedom fighter, Tomba, with whom she later reconnects.
She is sold to a Brazilian sugar plantation where she later has a son with Tomba. Brutality, including rape, abounds.
Before the Brave
Resistance leads to Ama's disfigurement and Tomba's death. The novel is a worthy and instructive depiction of a horrific violation of human rights. In his author's note, Manu Herbstein deplores the lack of discussion and education about slavery:. The slave plantations in the Americas were the testing ground for the future factories of the industrial revolution and for the concentration camps established by the British in South Africa and by the Nazis in Europe in the Second World War.
