This innovative anthology focuses on the enslavement, middle
passage, American experience, and return to Africa of a single
cultural group, the Yoruba. Moving beyond descriptions of generic
African experiences, this anthology will allow students to trace
the experiences of one cultural group throughout the cycle of the
slave experience in the Americas. The 19 essays, employing a
variety of disciplinary perspectives, provide a detailed study of
how the Yoruba were integrated into the Atlantic world through the
slave trade and slavery, the transformations of Yoruba identities
and culture, and the strategies for resistance employed by the
Yoruba in the New World.
