High Cotton (a slave's tale) MAAFA, THE AFRICAN HOLOCAUST AND THE SURVIVAL OF A TWELVE YEAR OLD BOY. "Riveting tale of a twelve year old boy kidnapped and sold to Dutch slave traders and his strength, and determination to be free." Kidnapped from his home, along with his brother, sold into slavery, Manni was determined to not only survive, but to overcome the torture and atrocities heaped upon him and his people by the ruthless Yoruba Warriors, then the Dutch slave traders. Somehow, in someway Manni touched the heartstrings of a rough, tough, barbaric ship's captain. But then, he was given over to the humiliation of the slave auction, purchased by a Plantation owner, where he spent the next eight years in servitude to his master. Civil war, southern defeat, emancipation, and he suddenly found himself to be free. He left the plantation and returned to the only other life he knew, the sailing ship, the Albatross.
