This Jane Austen masterpiece about unrequited and misunderstood love has a cult following in the publishing world. To date I have read about 3 versions that connect to the Darcy's and Bennett's saga. One had a vampire theme another had a following on the offspring of Mr. Darcy and Lizzy.

How about one that animates black life in the 1800's in England. Would it be possible anthropologically? Could there have been blacks in the British army back then? Could there have been a black clergyman or even a semi-poor family living in the countryside like the Bennett's. How about marriage, was it legal for blacks in England.

Any input would be much appreciated.
