  1. The expanse of the Atlantic Ocean could not stop the igbo spirit and separate them from their ancestral land; they courageously showed the world that the living spirit has no respect for distance. I could refer to this excerpt from Dennis Brutus:
    “stone walls do not a prison make,
    nor iron bars a cage….”
    This mass rejection of slavery, to my mind, sent a heart-rending signal to the discerning world that slavery was evil and, possibly, marked the beginning of its end.
