Freedom in White and Black

A Lost Story of the Illegal Slave Trade and Its Global Legacy

by Emma Christopher
Publication Date: 12/06/2018
Tamba, Tom Ball, Yarra, Noah, and Sessay-across time, the voices of these rive African men testify to the crimes of slavery. Their story can be told because of an exceptional trove of court papers documenting one small link in a great, horrific chain. In 1813, a British patrol swooped down upon an illegal compound bursting with sick and anguished captives, guarded by other African slaves. Emma Christopher follows a trali of evidence across four continents to examine the lives of this barracoon's owners, their workers, their tragic human merchandise, and what became of both the apprehended slavers and more than two hundred Africans who were freed. From the fragmented facts of these lives, Christopher sheds fascinating light on the early development of the nations of Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Australia (where two of the slavers were transported) and the role of former slaves in combatting the illegal trade.
