Cambria Press Publication Review: African Heritage and Memories of Slavery in Brazil and the South Atlantic World

Congratulations to Professor Ana Lucia Araujo (Howard University) on the outstanding review of her book African Heritage and Memories of Slavery in Brazil and the South Atlantic World by H-Net Reviews. The book review states:

Cambria Press publication review

Examining systems of oppression, representation, and acculturation, this book offers alternative ways of understanding and privileging African legacies in Brazil. Essentially, this interdisciplinary text challenges systems of racism and calls for the preservation,
presentation, and proliferation of African legacies in Brazil. … this book examines the systematic suppression of black and African-centered arts, bodies, religious practices, cultural norms, and sociopolitical traditions in Brazil. Chartering new perspectives, scholars uncover archival mysteries, museum practices, hidden histories, and places of historic trauma. This collection also reveals communal legacies of resistance and empowerment in the lives and practices of all Brazilian people. Read the rest of the review.

Cambria Publications by Dr. Araujo (more reviews at http://www.cambriapress.com):

Public Memory of Slavery: Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic

“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.” – James H. Sweet, Journal of African History

Paths of the Atlantic Slave Trade: Interactions, Identities, and Images

“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.” – Journal of Latin American Studies

African Heritage and Memories of Slavery in Brazil and the South Atlantic World

“The memory of slavery and the slave trade has strongly influenced how history is understood. What is remembered and why are clearly identified as major historical themes of analysis in this valuable collection.” – Canadian Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies

President Abraham Lincoln and Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation on Slavery

Presidential Proclamation Slavery Cambria Press publication review author publisher

Henry Louis Stephens, untitled watercolor ( c. 1863) of a man reading a newspaper with headline “Presidential Proclamation/Slavery”.

One hundred and fifty-three years ago on this day, President Abraham Lincoln had issued a preliminary proclamation warning that he would order the emancipation of all slaves in any state that did not end its rebellion against the Union by January 1, 1863.

Today the history and memory of slavery is an important area of study not only in the United States but all around the world, as scholars like Ana Lucia Araujo (Howard University), general editor of the Cambria Studies in Slavery Series, and the following books have shown.

Cambria Press New Publication: #Slavery, Migrations, and Transformations

Cambria Press announces a new publication in the Cambria Studies in Slavery: Past and Present Series by Ana Lucia Araujo (Howard University).

Cambria Press Publication academic publisher

Cambria Press New Publication: Slavery, Migrations, and Transformations:
Connecting Old and New Diasporas to the Homeland
edited by Toyin Falola and Danielle Porter Sanchez

“One cannot extricate the diasporic experiences of Haitians in Miami or Nigerians in Houston from the larger political and social climate of today’s world, which transcends national, regional, and international borders and connects Africans and African diasporic experiences over space and time.”  – Toyin Falola and Danielle Porter Sanchez (from the book’s introduction)

From Chapter 6: Rewind and Reframe: Thoughts on Race in Contemporary Europe

“Accumulating the privileges and prestige that accompany upward mobility does not always protect people of color, as pointed out in Steve McQueen’s film Twelve Years a Slave … In Europe, that vulnerability was reflected in racist insults directed at French justice minister Christiane Taubira during a 2013 visit to Angers.”

From Chapter 9: From Juan to Juan: The Triumph of Poet and Subject in Juan Latino’s Austrias carmen

The masterpiece of the extraordinary former-slave-turned-Latin professor Juan Latino … has a few features that distinguish it from other epic poems of its kind. For instance, certain passages in the poem present the point of view of marginalized figures.  … as a marginalized figure himself, a black man in a European society, Latino chose Juan de Austria [also marginalized because he was the illegitimate son of Charles V] as his epic hero because he could identify with him.”
