Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley : African Princess, Florida Slave, Plantation Slaveowner Paperback / softback
In this revised and expanded edition of Anna Kingsley's remarkable life story, Daniel Schafer draws on new discoveries to prove true the longstanding rumors that Anna Madgigine Jai was originally a princess from the royal family of Jolof in Senegal.
Captured from her homeland in 1806, she became first an American slave, later a slaveowner, and eventually a central figure in a free black community.
Anna Kingsley's story adds a dramatic chapter to the history of the South, the state of Florida, and the African diaspora.
