A universal story of loss, courage and triumph, “The Book of Negroes” recounts the extraordinary journey of Aminata Diallo, an indomitable African woman who survives in a world in which everything seems to be against her. 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.

I have read the book and I really hope that this television version holds up. This is a "must watch" during this Black History Month 2015.
Wonderful Historical Epic
I am half way through the series and am already amazed at how deftly it handles the story of African enslavement from a global perspective. Well acted, beautifully shot, and captivating to watch. I read/watch a lot on histories of the Atlantic World, Middle Passage, and eighteenth century, and this is one of the best films/series I’ve seen on it. (Read the book, too!)
I am on episode 5 and I'm in love with this show! I bought the season pass! I am so excited about this upcoming historical documentary! It's so stunning and creative!
