"In The San" by Oace AL Mansur
In Oace AL Mansur's “In The San” the evils of oppression from the Island of Haiti and beyond get shown through a soldier’s eyes. From the Haitian revolution all the way to the hidden history of the Gullah wars, commonly known as the Seminole wars, we find an ex slave warrior’s journey in a fight for freedom. During a time when America was coming into its own, Abram fought in the greatest and most successful slave rebellion in history, only to find himself in a distant land across the Atlantic, where the grips of slavery were so tight he had to find new allies and develop new ways of resistance. Come experience how revolution defined a man, not just in war but with his eternal battles with regret, disloyalty, paranoia, and post-traumatic stress. A soldier’s story must be revealed and appreciated for the resilient stance against an enemy that would stop at nothing to enslave his people forever.
