Finally, the most detailed research to date of the 1816 slave rebellion and its impactupon the emancipation debate is presented, which suggests that Barbadian slaves, like their counterparts in Demerara and Jamaica who rebelled in 1823 and 1831 respectively, were saying to their owners and the Imperial government, you will either grant us our freedom by law or force us to make it by war. This work is a polemical account of the changing relationships between maturing black radical consciousness and white power in Barbados during the slavery period. It goes a long way towards assisting the process of decolonising the island's general Eurocentric historiography."

Black Rebellion in Barbados gives a radical analysis of the multi-faceted, and often misunderstood, nature of black peoples' resistance to slavery in Barbados - the first major slave plantation society in the English New World. The author has pulled together much of the scattered data, both primary and secondary, to produce the first comprehensive account of slave resistance in this society from colonisation in 1627 to emancipation in 1838. He analyses the pattern of resistance in the 17th century frontier society in detail, with special emphasis on the practice of marronage and the 1649, 1675 and 1692 aborted slave uprisings. This is followed by a polemical analysis of resistance in the 18th century creole society, which emphasises the reasons why blacks failed to organise collective rebellions during this period. An abundance of primary data is presented on social structure, demography and planter ideology in order to explain the nature of white hegemony and domination.

Ce livre analyse la vie et l’œuvre de l’historien et homme politique de Guyana, Walter Rodney (1942-1980), ses années de formation, ses influences, son idéologie, et son action politique.

Alors que Rodney a fait l’objet d’une demi-douzaine de monographies en anglais, cet ouvrage est le premier travail en français consacré à cet historien anglophone. Il s’adresse autant à un public universitaire travaillant sur les mondes africains qu’à un public « militant » engagé sur les questions de développement et de luttes sociales.

"This book is an ambitious, extensive and detailed analysis of the roles played by African women in seven revolutionary movements in post World War II Africa. The revolutionary movements covered in this book occurred in: Algeria, Kenya, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Angola, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. The book describes and analyzes the nature and impact of women's participation in these revolutionary movements. How did these revolutionary movements define women's liberation? What is the linkage between feminist theories of liberation and national liberation? Did the national liberation movements betray women? And what has been the fate of the original commitments (and impulses) toward women's liberation and gender equality?"

Abolicionismo: Estados Unidos e Brasil, uma história comparada : século XIX by Celia Maria Marinho de Azevedo

Topics
, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Neste livro a autora de Onda Negra, Medo Branco dá continuidade aos seus estudos sobre a história da escravidão e da abolição através da comparação do abolicionismo nos Estados Unidos e no Brasil ao longo do século XIX. A história comparada do abolicionismo permite desvendar não só as ideologias com suas distintas imagens e proposições, como também as conexões entre abolicionistas americanos e brasileiros. O mito do paraíso racial brasileiro pode ser apreciado no seu próprio fazer através destes vínculos pessoais ou de influências recíprocas entre abolicionistas dos dois países, os quais por sua vez ressoavam diálogos com abolicionistas europeus. Do mesmo modo, pode-se perceber os diferentes significados que a Revolução do Haiti, a Guerra Civil Americana e a África suscitaram entre os abolicionistas, engendrando reflexões muito distintas sobre o destino do ex-escravo e o problema do racismo em cada país.

Assata Shakur, Mitglied der Black Panther Party und Mitbegründerin der Black Liberation Army, erzählt in ihrer Autobiografie mit kraft voller, authentischer Sti mme vom tief verwurzelten Rassismus in den USA und vom Aufbruch der militanten schwarzen Bürgerrechtsbewegung in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren. Sie zeichnet ein bewegendes Bild ihrer Kindheit bei den Großeltern im South Carolina der frühen 1950er-Jahre und ihrer Jugend in den Straßen der Bronx, berichtet detailliert über ihre Zeit im Gefängnis und über die rassistische Struktur des US-amerikanischen Justizsystems. In den Text eingestreut sind Gedichte Assata Shakurs, die erahnen lassen, was es bedeutet, schwarz, Frau und Revolutionärin zu sein.
