Njinga, the Warrior Queen, fought fiercely to keep her people from slavery. Yet she engaged in slave trading herself, performed human sacrifices and–some believed–even murdered her nephew, feasting on his heart. Was Njinga a terrifying tyrant or a freedom fighter?

Gorgeous illustrations and a smart, evocative story bring to life a dastardly dame who did whatever it took to win and protect her kingdom.
