General Description

This engaging and uplifting story follows the life of Atmun, an African king brought to America as a slave and renamed Amos. Though it is full of hardship and injustice, Amos learns to make the most of his life and education, eventually freeing himself and spreading hope and redemption to all he encounters. Amos Fortune, Free Man brings a new meaning to the word “ownership,” as Amos moves from being owned, to owning himself, to finding his place as a man of God.
