Before Malcolm X was betrayed by a group of his own peers, and prior to the assassination of Dr. King, there was Laura Kofi—a woman—and an African princess from the Gold Coast who endured their same fate in her efforts to liberate broken, inferior blacks in America.
Laura Kofi’s melodic African voice may elude history books, but after her arrival in America in 1926, she rattles communities of impoverished blacks—teaching economic self-sufficiency and encouraging a return to mother Africa. Laura’s authentic rise draws thousands of blacks into rallies and sanctuaries for a fresh course of action, and gains the attention of the UNIA, a black nationalist group.
Stubborn and focused on her mission, she ignores warnings of trouble stirring, the serious nature of threats, and even a man so deeply in love with her that she misinterprets his caring nature for a controlling one. But who can save her as she moves further into carrying out her honorable mission?
