Shontel and her friend are about to be told a tale they can barely believe is true. A tale from the past and a faraway place. Delighted, they sit down to listen to the true story of a young African boy taken from his home. The life and legend of Japan’s first African Samurai. A story of hope and inner strength. Black Samurai is an inspiration for children as it will teach them the importance of cultural heritage and show them that the strength we need in life is already within us.
