Ana Lucia Araujo, professor of history and director of graduate studies at Howard University, has published highly acclaimed books on slavery. Two of these books, Public Memory of Slavery and Paths of the Atlantic Slave Trade are the perfect studies for this year’s African Studies Association annual meeting theme. Her interdisciplinary books, which have earned outstanding reviews in several top journals, answer many questions on rethinking the violence, reconstruction, and reconciliation of the history of African slaves.
Browse Public Memory of Slavery now and recommend this book to your colleagues.
Book Review by the Journal of African History: “An important and provocative work. No other study so thoroughly chronicles the fraught and ambiguous history of memorializing slavery in the South Atlantic. Araujo’s ability to ‘read’ multiple sources – both discursive and non-discursive – makes the book truly interdisciplinary in scope. It will be a crucial starting point for all future studies of slavery and memory in Benin and Brazil.”

Book Review by the Journal of Latin American Studies: “”The scholarly quality of the dozen essays included here is uniformly high … The quality and variety of the contributions make this book a desirable purchase for research libraries, and scholars of the history and culture of slavery and the black Atlantic are well advised to direct their attention to the essays which best match their interests and to consult the extensive and up-to-date bibliography of primary and secondary sources with which Paths of the Atlantic Slave Trade closes. Araujo and her contributors deserve praise for putting together this exciting collection, as does Cambria Press for producing it as an attractively designed and well-laid-out volume.”
