Sparked by an indigo sun, Nat Turner stormed into history with a sword in one hand and a Bible in the other. Thirty years before the advent of the Civil War—in the predawn hours of August 22, 1831, commanding a small army of slaves, Nat Turner led a bloody fight for freedom that shined a national spotlight on slavery and left more than fifty whites dead. In The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part 2: The Testimony, as Harriet Beecher Stowe seeks to learn the truth of the man his people called Prophet, Nat Turner shares the faith, triumph, tragedy, and hope of his fight for liberty, brotherhood, and self-determination. 

For 180 years, the truth of Nat’s story has been tainted. Award-winning author Sharon Ewell Foster reinterprets history to offer a new American story of one man’s struggle for freedom and the redemption of his people. Based on actual trial records, interviews with descendants, official documents, and five years of research, The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part 2: The Testimony is a story of the quest for truth and the true meaning of liberty.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is simply told and moving, Foster’s best work since her groundbreaking first novel, Passing by Samaria.”

    Booklist

  • “Foster uses her strong research skills and her skill at turning historical names into living, breathing humans to great advantage.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Having been a longtime fan of Sharon Ewell Foster, The Resurrection of Nat Turner still knocked my socks off! To me, her previous works were all leading up to these momentous novels. In all her stories Foster dares to tell the truth…More than that, they dare to expose the comfortable lies we’ve grown accustomed to.”

    Neta Jackson, author of The Yada Yada Prayer Group and House of Hope novels

  • “This is a liberating book, both psychologically and historically. Read it, read again, and then pass it on to someone who thinks they know who the real Nat Turner is.”

    Raymond A. Winbush, author of Belinda’s Petition, a Concise History of Reparations for the Transatlantic Slave Trade
