9976: Re: 9960: Slave narratives (fwd)
From: thor burnham <email@example.com>
There is a new slave narrative published this fall that deserves to be
mentioned in response to the question (one among many), and also because the
author, Mohammah Gardo Baquaqua, spent two very important and well
documented years in Haiti. You can tell by his name that he was a Muslim.
I had the privilege to assist the authors (I was one of a large contingent
of people who worked on the project) and spent time in various archives in
Detroit and New York.
I'll provide two links: one for The Harriet Tubman Research Centre on the
African Diaspora which will give listmembers an idea of some of the work
being done at York University in Toronto and a second specific URL which
will take you to the page where the book is listed.
The two editors are Robin Law and Paul E. Lovejoy, two leading Africanists
who specialize in slavery and the area of the Slave Coast in Africa.
it's the seventh book down. it will give the publisher etc.
It's a great tool for undergraduates because it starts in Africa, goes to
Brazil, then to New York, then to Haiti, back to New York and then on to
Chatham, in Canada West, the most important terminal of the Underground
Anyway, hope this helps.
