About this title:

Synopsis: The Atlantic slave trade was one of the greatest intercontinental migrations in world history. Today, about one-third of all people of African descent live outside Africa. Yet the historical record of the slaved trade remains curiously uneven. Africa Remembered tells much about some of the African societies from which thousands of slaves were imported to the Americas, and from which millions of Afro-Americans are descended. The documents collected here--ten rare, personal recollections--all mirror the West African slave trade from the non-European viewpoint. Each narrative relates vivid, exciting, and sometimes shocking personal experiences. They provide readers with an unusually candid insight into the history of the black people--and their European contemporaries--during this crucial period.

From the Back Cover: "Curtin's contribution to African history is beyond dispute. In this trenchant volume he shows African agency in changing the population dynamics of Europe, the New World, and continental Africa. This is one of the best books on the subject." -- Joseph Bangura, Kalamazoo College

"This work is necessary to the study of the Atlantic system. It provides insights into West African societies by Africans so that students will not have to depend so heavily upon European travel and administrative accounts. More works of this type are needed." -- Sundiata Djata, Northern Illinois University

"Slavery is no longer an abstraction: it is made more real by Curtin's text." -- Philip Evans, Flagler College

"This is an excellent book of primary sources for undergraduates in a variety of history courses, especially West African history and African diaspora history. Students enjoy reading the words of West Africans themselves as too rarely are West African voices heard from the slave trade era." -- Andrew Clark, University of North Carolina, Wilmington
