NAGB Favs : Lawrence’s Favourite Book

“I recently completed Sean McWeeney’s fascinating book on the early nineteenth century Bahamian struggle for civil rights. In addition to relating a uniquely Bahamian story, this book also highlights the pivotal role Bahamians have played in translating the monumental gains of the Haitian revolution to the pioneering work of early twentieth-century American civil rights activists. The writing is superb and the story is a page-turner.”
