Recovered Histories

Containing over 40,000 digitised pages of literature on the slave trade, 'Recovered Histories: Reawakening the narratives of enslavement, resistance and the fight for freedom', makes Anti-Slavery International's collection of literature on the Transatlantic Slave Trade widely available on the internet for the first time.

Included are arguments condemning and supporting the slave trade, evidence gathered to present to Parliament in the 18th and 19th centuries, illustrations of life on the plantations, and details of slave uprisings in the Caribbean and the attempts by many enslaved Africans to liberate themselves and determine their own futures.
