About this product
- DescriptionLike snapshots of everyday life in the past, the compelling biographies in this book document the making of the Black Atlantic world since the sixteenth century from the point of view of those who were part of it. Centering on the diaspora caused by the forced migration of Africans to Europe and across the Atlantic to the Americas, the chapters explore the slave trade, enslavement, resistance, adaptation, cultural transformations, and the quest for citizenship rights. Drawing on a rich array of little-kwn documents, the contributors reconstruct the lives and times of some well-kwn characters along with ordinary people who rarely left written records and would otherwise have remained anymous and unkwn.
