Englishman Robinson Crusoe, stranded alone on an island for years, is overjoyed to find a fellow man, a black islander whom he names Friday. But Crusoe cannot overcome the shackles of his own heritage and upbringing and is incapable of seeing Friday as anything other than a savage who needs Crusoe's brand of cultural and religious enlightenment. Friday attempts to share his own more generous and unashamed culture, but ultimately realizes that Crusoe can never see him as anything but an inferior being. With that awareness, Friday sets out to turn the tables on Crusoe. Written by

Master's law was one of order. Friday's law was one of life. Each tried to overcome the other!

Did You Know?
When we first met you were nothing but a savage, but I have educated you.
When I first met you, you were a killer possessed by demons and I taught you how to sing and dance. Not very well, but I taught you that much at least. And your head was full of nothing but your own power, your own guilt, and the fear of a cruel god. But perhaps I was a very bad teacher, because your head is still full of thoughts of power and guilt and fear.
