Journal of a Slave and His Descendants is a refreshing and compelling novel that neatly traces the 'Middle Passage' Slave Trade through the eyes of ancestral root-characters including Africans and Europeans. Dr. Blackett's use of actual 'slave like stories', relevant data of important occurences during the period of slavery leading up to emancipation and present day existence, help readers glean information on essential features of the slave trade that tend to be ignored by contemporary historians including (human) geographers. Her analysis of the psychological effects of slavery on succeeding generations of African People (especially from Caribbean societies), offers both clarity and hope for those who regard this episode as unworthy of mention lest they upset the status quo.
