Yanga, a young African prince, was preparing to rule his Senegambian kingdom when Portuguese slavers captured and condemned him to a life of toil and torture in colonial Mexico. But Yanga never gave up, leading an uprising of self-liberated Africans and establishing the first free territory in the Americas.
Based on a true story, this action-packed work of historical fiction recalls Yanga's incredible journey from warrior prince to enslaved plantation worker to the freedom fighter. Meet Mexico's Greatest African Hero, the man brought the Spanish Imperial forces to its knees.
