Description

Steeped historical research, this inspiring account explores the extraordinary methods used by African American slaves to maintain seemingly impossible personal relationships during the 19th century. Besides running away together or raising money to buy their own freedom, lovers also filed successful lawsuits, became military spies or counterspies and used rumours of voodoo to create bluffs and tricks in order to survive. An inspiring testimony to the ingenuity of humans caught up in inhumane situations.
