Description

Once upon a time, there was a girl who couldn’t be captured. Her name was Nanny. In the jungles of Jamaica, escaped slaves called maroons lived together in colonies, and “Queen Nanny,” as they called her, was one of their leaders. Helped along by her ancestors and the strength of her people, Nanny taught slaves to use the environment to their advantage and fight back. Queen Nanny’s legacy continues to inspire activists and rebels to this day.
