Adrian Stone describes his journey from Bristol to London, then on to Jamaica, Scotland and America, and ultimately to an African woman named Ebo Venus. Ebo came to Kellits slave plantation in Jamaica in the 1790’s from Nigeria.
This learning journey became a spiritual quest as he was able to discover more about his own identity as he discovered 6000 family members from a surprising variety of ethnic groups and geographical locations.
Adrian’s research also revealed oral traditions, documents and buildings that demonstrated his family’s experience of enslavement, emancipation and migration from the 20th century back to the mid 18th century.
