Summary
This is an illustrated "graphic history" based on an 1876 court transcript of a West African woman named Abina, who was wrongfully enslaved and took her case to court. The main scenes of the story take place in the courtroom, where Abina strives to convince a series of "important men"-- a British judge, two Euro-African attorneys, a wealthy African country "gentleman," and a jury of local leaders --that her rights matter
