Born the prince of Dukandarra, Guinea, Broteer Furro was captured by slave traders at age six. As Broteer stepped off of the African continent and onto a Rhode-Island-bound cargo ship, the vessel's steward purchased the boy and gave him a new name: Venture. The young man crossed the Atlantic, landed in Narraganset, and worked through a lifetime of slavery to buy not only his own freedom, but the freedoms of his wife and children.
