Deskripsi

It's the summer of 2041.

One year earlier, America elected its first Mexican American president. Unemployment is at a record low, the economy is humming, and opportunities are plentiful…but not for everyone. The white population is now in the minority, with some feeling threatened and "surrounded" by the changing demographics; as if they are on the verge of extinction. These folks migrate to the upper northwest of the US to form an unofficial white ethnostate, which is mockingly known as "the Caucasian Caliphate."

Some feel the heat of a second Civil War simmering.

 A controversial political talk show host named Gerry Baines makes a proclamation about God's intervention to cure America's woes via an existential breaking point, in the form of a major, but unknown, event. One week later, on August 8th, three African slave ships appear out of thin air in Kips Bay, between NY and NJ.

 A special team, led by Secretary of State Lucy Fender (in town for a UN Conference), is recruited to investigate the mysterious appearance of the ships. The team includes a quantum physicist named Kiki Bishop, a university professor named Joseph Healey, and his friend and colleague, Maxmilian Oroko—an African language specialist and historian.

Onorede Madaki is a warrior from the Krou tribe in 17th Century Africa. He embarks on what his village elders believe is an insane mission: to seek out and be purposefully captured by the "pale face ghosts" invading their land and rumored to abduct people from neighboring tribes for nefarious, and possibly cannibalistic horrors. While imprisoned on a slave ship during its Middle Passage, he and two of his tribesmen wind up on one of the ships caught in the time travel event.

Meanwhile, in the 27th Century, a mysterious man has accomplished the impossible; but at what cost?

Part satire, part historical drama, and spanning over thousands of years, this is a story that asks the question... "If you could go back in time, could you prevent African slavery?"
