Run For Pompey

EXUMA, Bahamas (November 9, 2019) - The year was 1830. Like many places in the world, slavery was a way of life in the Bahamas.

So when John Rolle, a British Lord and plantation owner on Exuma, declared that 77 slaves must be transferred to work on Cat Island, it was understood that families would be separated. Lives splintered. All accepted this fate, except Pompey.
