Shola's monologue after the burning of the plantation church:
Joe was locked in that church for days. They tried to smoke him out but finally they just burnt the whole church down. Father Raphael - Joe - Church - nothin' but ashes. And Nunu; Nunu was nowhere to be found. They never did find a trace of her. Some folks believe to this day that she never died. They say they saw this big buzzard come swoop down and fly her back to her Africa.
