This is the story of Mustapha, a North Carolinian slave in 1808. Mustapha teamed up with a hunchbacked white criminal named Arthur Howe to escape from captivity. Together, they launched a brilliant scheme: after escaping from his plantation, Mustapha and Howe traveled north, and at each town they came to, Howe would sell Mustapha to a local plantation owner for a healthy price. Then that same night, Mustapha would escape again, rejoin Howe, and they would split the cash from the sale. They kept this up for a while until the pair separated, and Mustapha made his escape to the northward a wealthy man.
