A. Robert Allen

A. Robert Allen has published three volumes in his Slavery and Beyond series. The first, Failed Moments, is a fictional account of his ancestors in 1790 during the slave revolution in what would become Haiti and later in 1863 during New York's Draft Riots. The second volume, A Wave From Mama, immerses readers in racially charged post Civil War Brooklyn and gives an interesting look at the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. The third book in the series, Minetta Lane, takes place in 1904 in a downtown New York neighborhood that lives by an unusual race-based code. A. Robert Allen is a long-time higher education professional residing in New York City who writes historical fiction for people interested in racial themes, which will transport them to another time and place.
