Alloune is a recently retired employee of the History of Slavery Museum on Gorée Island who decides on a trip to the USA to trace ancestors who were sold into slavery. His nephew Hassan lives in Harlem’s Little Senegal. Undaunted by the social divide between black Africans and Americans, he tracks down a “cousin,” Ida Robinson, who owns a newspaper stand, and gradually gains her confidence.
