Beyond the Legacy of Slavery
Beyond the Legacy of Slavery is the living testimony of the great grandson of a slave who survived the transatlantic Middle Passage slave trade from Sierra Leone to St. Christopher (St. Kitts). The author was born in the era of the plantocracy with its social and economic evils of abject poverty and wretchedness.
By the grace of God, he went above and beyond the legacy of slavery. He was able to overcome insuperable mountains of affliction, discrimination, segregation, obstruction and oppression to become a soldier, lawyer, diplomat, and minister.
His homecoming to Makeni, Sierra Leone, the land of his ancestral home, was one of providence, glory, triumph, freedom and unity with the ancestors.
Alien in Paradise
Alien in Paradise is the true story of Reverend Bertram L. Charles, whose trust and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ lifted him out of poverty to become a soldier, lawyer, diplomat and minister.
It is also instructive as it captures the plight of so-called "aliens" from the Eastern Caribbean and their struggle for justice and fairness as residents of the United States Virgin Islands during the '50s, '60s and '70s.
