Lion Island takes place in nineteenth-century Cuba, a tumultuous time period when the country is fighting for freedom from Spain while also enforcing enslaved African and Chinese indentured servant labor. The novel follows historical figure Antonio Chuffat, a young man of African, Chinese, and Cuban-descent, who becomes a champion for civil rights through the power of his words.
