Editorial Reviews


"As other regimes of politically imposed truth, one must wait for an Alice to lead us through the mirror. Ana Lucia Araujo and the volume contributors invite us to an enlightening travel to the other side of the mirror of oblivion and silence tightened by the public space." - Bogumil Jewsiewicki, Universite Laval, Canada "The various contributors look at both sides of the Atlantic, at the descendants of masters and slaves, at the societies that profited and those that were created by the Atlantic slave trade. They explore folklore, photography, art, published literature, religious practices, and the struggles over the creation of suitable memorials. The different contributions are about efforts to shatter silences and to preserve them, to remember formally, to memorialize, and sometimes, to hide from history". - Martin Klein, University of Toronto, Canada

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
