The Book Of Negroes

The Book of Negroes mini-series airs tonight on BET.

When the Revolution breaks out in New York, Aminata seizes her chance and escapes to freedom in the haven of Canvas Town.

Abducted from her village in West Africa, 11-year-old Aminata Diallo is forced into a slave coffle and must endure a horrific ocean crossing. She is brought to a South Carolina plantation where she makes herself useful by using midwifery skills learned at her mother’s side, all the while keeping the attentions of her jealous slave master, Robinson Appleby, at bay. Soon after Aminata re-encounters Chekura, a fellow slave from West Africa, and they are married in a clandestine ceremony. When their first baby is brutally abducted and sold by Appleby, she vows to return one day to her homeland.

The Book of Negroes mini-series airs Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. on BET.
