When one woman tells of her extraordinary journey to overcome the
brutality of slavery, she becomes a beacon for the British
anti-slavery movement.

Born into slavery in the British colony of Bermuda, Mary Prince went
on to become an autobiographer and champion of freedom. Her book had
an electrifying effect on the abolitionist movement helping to free
many Africans in bondage. Written by Amantha Edmead and told through
theatre, song, live drumming and dance, inspired by the storytelling
traditions of the West African Griot.
