Ignatius Sancho

(Häftad)6-9 år

Beskrivning:

My Story: Ignatius Sancho is the extraordinary true story of a young boy's life: a slave, a servant, a business owner, a campaigner, a composer, a writer. Greenwich 1738, and eight-year-old Ignatius lives with three sisters. Not as a member of their family, but more or less a pet – a toy. He serves them breakfast, lunch and dinner, fetches and carries, does their bidding and all without thanks or a smile. He lives with the constant possibility of being sent away to a sugar plantation – to endure back-breaking work away from everything and everyone he has ever known.  When the threat of being sent back to the West Indies to be enslaved on a plantation becomes suddenly all too real, Ignatius must escape and start to build a real and brilliant life for himself.  an inspirational story based on real life perfect for anyone wanting to understand more about Britain's role in the transatlantic slave trade  an empowering and important read.  "I have to sit down. I need to wipe my eyes. Imagine, me, the little boy who slaved for the sisters and had to fight so hard to be able to read and write, has become the first black man to have a say in who governs England." Experience history first-hand with My Story.
