Meet the author of Reparations for Slavery and the Slave Trade: A
Transnational and Comparative History (Bloomsbury, November 2017),
Ana-Lucia Araujo, on Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 5:00-6:30pm, at Van
Stockum Bookstore (located at Breestraat 113, 2311 CL Leiden, The
Netherlands
<https://maps.google.com/?q=Breestraat+113,+2311+CL+Leiden,+The+Netherlands&entry=gmail&source=g>).*

*Description*: Slavery and the Atlantic slave trade are among the most
heinous crimes against humanity committed in the modern era. Yet, to this
day no former slave society in the Americas has paid reparations to former
slaves or their descendants. European countries have never compensated
their former colonies in the Americas, whose wealth relied on slave labor,
to a greater or lesser extent. Likewise, no African nation ever obtained
any form of reparations for the Atlantic slave trade.

Ana Lucia Araujo argues that these calls for reparations are not only not
dead, but have a long and persevering history. She persuasively
demonstrates that since the 18th century, enslaved and freed individuals
started conceptualizing the idea of reparations in petitions,
correspondences, pamphlets, public speeches, slave narratives, and judicial
claims, written in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese. In different
periods, despite the legality of slavery, slaves and freed people were
conscious of having been victims of a great injustice.

This is the first book to offer a transnational narrative history of the
financial, material, and symbolic reparations for slavery and the Atlantic
slave trade. Drawing from the voices of various social actors who
identified themselves as the victims of the Atlantic slave trade and
slavery, Araujo illuminates the multiple dimensions of the demands of
reparations, including the period of slavery, the emancipation era, the
post-abolition period, and the present.
