Fireburn The Screenplay
Angela Golden Bryan wrote Fireburn The Screenplay: A story of passion ignited, based on the history of St. Croix, with the intention of creating greater awareness of the US Virgin Island’s bloody Labor Revolt of 1878. This pivotal event is known as the Fireburn and it drastically affected the people and economy of the islands. Due to the unique nature of the US Virgin Islands, this story is Caribbean history, Danish history, African diaspora history and World history, yet it is little known outside the islands.
Bryan’s historical fiction is a tribute to the four “Queens” who rose to leadership by taking a fiery stance against the unfair labor conditions that existed for the emancipated Laborers. Her book weaves a tale of passion, purpose, and revenge and delivers an electrifying and visceral experience to the reader. The vivid descriptions, historical references, and turbulent relationships create a myriad of emotions.
