In this savage parable of the African American experience, Rutherford Calhoun, a newly freed slave eking out a living in New Orleans in 1830, hops aboard a square rigger to evade the prim Boston schoolteacher who wants to marry him. But the RepublicMoreIn this savage parable of the African American experience, Rutherford Calhoun, a newly freed slave eking out a living in New Orleans in 1830, hops aboard a square rigger to evade the prim Boston schoolteacher who wants to marry him. But the Republic turns out to be a slave clipper bound for Africa.

Calhoun, whose master educated him as a humanist, becomes the captains cabin boy, and though he hates himself for acting as a lackey, hes able to help the African slaves recently taken aboard to stage a revolt before the rowdy, drunken crew can spring a mutiny.
