Rev. Pascoe G. Hill has left us a chilling testament. Fifty Days on Board a Slave - Vessel is his unforgettable account of life on a slave ship. Hill's narrative locks fifty days into an existence of forever that haunts, not from the fear of the unknown, but the fear of the known. At a relatively safe distance of more than a hundred years away from Hill's time we know, as he did, the extended suffering of the enslaved Africans.
