Summary
This biography tells the story of the former slave Olaudah Equiano (1745?-97), who in his day was the English-speaking world's most renowned person of African descent. It is filled with fresh revelations - most notably that Equiano may have been born not in Africa, as he claimed, but in South Carolina
