Synopsis he story of Abina Mansah - a woman 'without history' who was wrongfully enslaved, escaped to British-controlled territory, and then took her former master to court - takes place in the complex world of the Gold Coast at the onset of late 19th-century colonialism. Slavery becomes a contested ground, as cultural practices collide with an emerging wage economy and British officials turn a blind eye to the presence of underpaid domestic workers in the households of African merchants. The mainscenes 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.
