The Legacies of Slavery for African History

With Toby Green, King's College London

In this presentation Toby Green (King's College, London; author, A Fistful of Shells) examines how the struggle over Abolition in the 18th and 19th centuries paved the way for a Western historiography of precolonial Africa which has focussed predominantly on the topic of slavery in Africa. This can have the consequence of both primitivising and culpabilising African societies for the histories of slavery in the West. Through looking at examples from a new research project on the 17th century, Green explores the complexity of slavery in precolonial African history"
