Njinga, the Warrior Queen, fought fiercely to keep her people from slavery. Yet she engaged in slave trading herself, performed human sacrifices and--some believed--even murdered her nephew, feasting on his heart. Was Njinga a terrifying tyrant or a freedom fighter?
Gorgeous illustrations and a smart, evocative story bring to life a dastardly dame who did whatever it took to win and protect her kingdom.
