"A Caribbean slave ship, a Liverpool bookshop. Sometimes silence is not an option. Edward, an uneducated Everton boy, goes to sea on a slave ship. When his best friend – a former African slave – drowns saving Edward’s life, his world changes forever. Spanning oceans and continents, and inspired by words and events in the life of Liverpool abolitionist, poet and human rights campaigner, Edward Rushton, Unsung is the turbulent and uplifting story of one man’s capacity to see beyond the prejudices of his time."
