For as far back as she can remember, historian and activist Rebecca Hall has been looking for tales of women warriors in the history of American slave resistance. The problem, she found, is that almost everywhere she looked - in the archives, in the history books - there was a bl...ank space. All the Black women who had fought and rebelled had been obscured, ignored, and blotted out. This is their story, and the story of uncovering their struggle. Strikingly illustrated by Hugo Martinez, Wake combines forensic historiography with powerful imaginative reconstruction to explore the humanity of the enslaved, the reality of their lives, and the complexity of a history that has been hidden.
