Recommended Reading: Africans On the Move

Africans have been on the move since the 1st century and across the Atlantic since the late 15th century; and the recent trends show that populations from West Africa continue to cross over into Europe, while East Africans migrate into Europe and parts of Asia and the Middle East in search of secure labor. The December – January Recommended Reading exhibit features key works on these themes.

Basic numbers have been crunched by the renowned historian Philip Curtin in his well-known history of slaving: The Atlantic Slave Trade: A Census. Other excellent scholarship on the Middle Passage include the works of Marty Klein (Slavery and Colonial Rule in French West Africa); Claude Meillassoux (The Anthropology of Slavery: The Womb of Iron and Gold); and Paul Lovejoy (Transformations in Slavery). A recent popular theme for slaving is reparations. For this, see Rhoda Howard-Hassmann’s Reparations to Africa. Africans on the move within the continent receives enlightened attention in Ed Wilmsen’s Land Filled with Flies, a Herskovitts Award winner.
