From Jamestown to Jamestown: Bridging the Knowledge Gap between Africans & African-Americans

"From Jamestown to Jamestown: Letters to an African Child" chronicles the story of the African captured in slavery, from the coasts of the continent, with his pain and anguish, as well as his resistance, rebellion and tenacity on the high seas, to the struggle for freedom and emancipation, both in Africa and in the New World. The story illuminates the common civilization both sides possess as well as the common heritage they share.
