Public Memory of Slavery: Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic by Ana Lucia Araujo has earned yet another rave review! Afro-Asia commends the book for having “the virtue of pioneer works” and states that “one of the most important contributions of the text is the constant confrontation between the knowledge consolidated by the historiography and the processes of memory disputes”. Be sure to check out this book at the African Studies Association annual meeting this week in Philadelphia!
Ana Lucia Araujo is also the editor of Paths of the Atlantic Slave Trade: Interactions, Identities, and Images and the general editor of the book series, Slavery: Past and Present.
