This lecture will be based on the book Slavery in the Age of Memory: Engaging the Past by Dr. Ana Lucia Araujo, Professor of History at Howard University.
Exploring notions of history, collective memory, cultural memory, public memory, official memory, and public history, Slaver in the Age of Memory: Engaging the Past explains how ordinary citizens, social groups, governments, and institutions engage with the past of slavery and the Atlantic slave trade. It illuminates how and why over the last five decades the debates about slavery have become so relevant in the societies where slavery existed and which participated in the Atlantic slave trade.
