Dr. Emmanuel Gordien is a memor y activist. With his association, CM98, he restores to the West Indians the history and forgotten names of their ancestors who were slaves. An action closely related to his personal quest approach. He met Georges, the slave who was the first after abolition to carry his family name: Gordien. With him, we travel back to the footsteps of his ancestor, in Ile-De-France, Guadeloupe and Benin. A human adventure full of hope.
