It's finally time forCharles Ignatius Sanchoto tell his story, one that beginson a slave ship in the Atlantic and endsat the very center of London life. . . .A lush and immersive tale of adventure,artistry, romance, and freedomset in eighteenth-century Englandand based on a true story

It's 1746 and Georgian London is not a safe place for a young Black man. Charles Ignatius Sancho must dodge slave catchers and worse, and his main ally--a kindly duke who taught him to write--is dying. Sancho is desperate and utterly alone. So how does the same Charles Ignatius Sancho meet the king, write and play highly acclaimed music, become the first Black person to vote in Britain, and lead the fight to end slavery? Through every moment of this rich, exuberant tale, Sancho forges ahead to see how much he can achieve in one short life: "I had little right to live, born on a slave ship where my parents both died. But I survived, and indeed, you might say I did more."
