Middle Passage

I gratefully acknowledge the vocal coaching of Guislaine Le-Tri on the French accent and words. Any weakness in my performance is entirely my fault, however.

“There’s not a single supernatural creature or event in Matthew Warner’s superb, gripping ‘Middle Passage,’ but this tale of African slaves on an ill-fated voyage should be required reading in any course on that despicable institution. The catalog of daily horrors endured by all, and especially a father and his daughter, is enough to shame any human.”
