Black Personalities in the Era of the Slave Trade by Paul Edwards, James Walvin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 27 Mb
Overview: This book developed out of our essay, ‘Africans in Britain, 1500-1800’, in The African Diaspora, edited by Martin L. Kilson and Robert I. Rotberg and published in 1976 by Harvard University Press. Our aim is to encourage further studies in British black history already pioneered by such writers as Joel Rogers and Edward Scobie, and developed in the work of Folarin Shy lion – in particular his Black People in Britain, 1555-1833 (1976)- to whom we wish to acknowledge our debt. We believe that the present time is one in which we should look for the recovery and restatement of the history of black people in Britain, a history more ancient than is generally realised, for the understanding of which a great deal of material remains to be brought again to the surface. The study of black literature, too, thought of usually as a recent phenomenon, can be given greater depth by showing the continuity of feeling and purpose in Equiano’s autobiography (1789), Blyden’s Christianity, Islam and the Negro Race (1888) and the modern novels and essays of Chinua Achebe. The opportunity for such studies and reinterpretations does not lie simply in the academic sphere: an immense amount of the work on black history might be carried on by local interest, particularly if widely organised, such as by the development of centres of information. To this we hope our book will offer some encouragement.
