Kidnapped by slave traders in West Africa then sold into slavery in South Carolina, Aminata navigates her way through the American Revolution in New York, the isolated refuge of Nova Scotia, and the treacherous jungles of Sierra Leone, before finally securing her freedom in England at the dawn of the 19th century.

The power of educating one's self was never so evident in helping overcome one's struggles as in the story of Aminata Diallo. From her father's teaching her how to read and his test of her finding her way back to the village, to her interest in maps of Africa, Aminata never stopped learning and seeking out solutions to the challenging circumstances of being stolen and sold into slavery.
