Sarah Margru Kinson went home…

Today we started reading Ms. Monica Edinger’s manuscript (posted on an online blog) about one of the 3 girl children on the Amistad whose name was Margru.

The Amistad story is fascinating because the Africans who were captured never became slaves; instead they were able to return home, though their lives were forever changed.

Edited to add that this book has since been published by Monica Edinger as Africa Is My Home
