Below is an audio book reading of compilations, from the memories of Nat Turner’s contemporaries, by Sharon Ewell Foster. The truth has been buried more than one hundred years…
Leading a small army of slaves, Nat Turner was a man born with a mission: to set the captives free. When words failed, he ignited an uprising that left over fifty whites dead. In the predawn hours of August 22, 1831, Nat Turner stormed into history with a Bible in one hand, brandishing a sword in the other. His rebellion shined a national spotlight on slavery and the state of Virginia and divided a nation’s trust. Turner himself became a lightning rod for abolitionists like Harriet Beecher Stowe and a terror and secret shame for slave owners.
In The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part 1: The Witnesses, Nat Turner’s story is revealed through the eyes and minds of slaves and masters, friends and foes. In their words is the truth of the mystery and conspiracy of Nat Turner’s life, death, and confession. The Resurrection of Nat Turner spans more than sixty years, sweeping from the majestic highlands of Ethiopia to the towns of Cross Keys and Jerusalem in Southampton County. Using extensive research, Sharon Ewell Foster breaks hallowed ground in this epic novel, revealing long-buried secrets about this tragic hero.

Contrast this with the assassination of Nat Turner by William Styron and his bottom bitch and homosexual traitor, James Baldwin that won the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Styron and not his bottom bitch. A Pulitzer prize! In the book, and i confess, I have only heard excerpts these two faggots portrayed Nat Turner has an effeminate character who was open to a homosexual encounter. I say faggot because this twisting of a great man is intolerable and deliberately positioned to remove the masculinity from what African manhood is supposed to be. Not fucking Lil Wayne or 50 cents or any of those nick nacks they force on us as examples of manhood. So if you’all don;t like my use of that word… fuck off! This is why we have to tell our own story, because our oppressors will never tell the tale that benefit us.
This is the review from Amazon: “
The Confessions of Nat Turner is narrated by Nat himself as he lingers in jail through the cold autumnal days before his execution. The compelling story ranges over the whole of Nat’s Life, reaching its inevitable and shattering climax that bloody day in August.
The Confessions of Nat Turner is not only a masterpiece of storytelling; is also reveals in unforgettable human terms the agonizing essence of Negro slavery. Through the mind of a slave, Willie Styron has re-created a catastrophic event, and dramatized the intermingled miseries, frustrations–and hopes–which caused this extraordinary black man to rise up out of the early mists of our history and strike down those who held his people in bondage.
What Yurugu deliberately remove from the narrative was (a) there was an original book called the confession of Nat Turner by Thomas R. Gray in 1831

Perhaps the most feared, despised and greatest enslaved African hero outside of Africa, who didn’t just talk about liberation but walked the walk.
