Negro Fort

Negro Fort - Paul AllenNegro Fort

Two slaves, Joe Cudjo and his wife Janie, run away from a Georgia plantation, taking a small boat down the river into Florida. There on the riverbank was the “Negro Fort,” a stronghold of runaway slaves and renegade Indians.

At the fort, Joe becomes a soldier in its army. He and Janie begin a new life in a prosperous community of a thousand free blacks. But when an American invasion is mounted to destroy the fort, Joe and the others must fight to save their dream.

Based upon fact, NEGRO FORT is a story that has never been told.

Paul Allen’s Negro Fort does all of that and more.’  — William Martin, New York Times Bestselling Author of Citizen Washington and The Lincoln Letter
