Abina and the Important Men
Young, enslaved, African, and poor, Abina Mansah was the kind of person you never learned about in history class. Today’s students are luckier. They can meet this bold, intelligent, and pugnacious young woman in Abina, a digital education app designed around the 19th century documents that tell the story of Abina taking her master to court.
