      Her name is anglicized to Meena Dee. She is a guide and a beacon of strength in the New World. A young British naval officer named Captain John Clarkson comes to the black Birchtown communities, promising a better land reserved for them in Sierra Leone. He features Aminata Diallo, a young African woman captured as a child; she is literate and acts as a scribe to record the information about the former slaves. The captives under the boat develop a desperate mentality.

      The first paragraph of each book section is her writing about her current life. The boat eventually reached land. She publishes her life story, speaks at schools and churches, and even meets the King and Queen. A notable difference between The Book of Negroes and many slave narratives adapted for the screen is that it follows a woman through her journey to freedom, Aminata, played by Aunjanue Ellis. She talks about her life in the village. This group, who became known as the Nova Scotian Settlersestablished Freetownthe capital city.

Lawrence Hill has won two awards recently.
