Between Slavery & Freedom

Price
84.75 BBD

On August 1, 1834, more than 20,000 African slaves were emancipated in the British Caribbean. As in other areas of the British Empire, however, only slave children under six years of age were freed immediately. The rest were apprenticed to their former owners for a stipulated term of four to six years. It was during this time that more than one hundred men were appointed as special magistrates to oversee and arbitrate between the ex-slaves and their former owners. Among them was John Anderson, a Scottish lawyer, who arrived on the island of St. Vincent in 1836. An uninhibited racist, he ironically became a central player in Caribbean emancipation.

For the next two and a half years Anderson compiled a journal describing in extraordinary detail the relationship between the remaining enslaved population, free blacks, and their former owners. His journal documents the lives of different castes of slaves, and also those of whites who lived on the island. While he found all residents -- white and black -- of St. Vincent uncultured, his writings shed light on the island's institutions, the activities of the free colored population, and the character of the towns and rural life.

Between two Silences

Price
22.15 BBD

This translation of Contreras' collection of short stories, Entre dos silencios / Between Two Silences, is timely and most welcome, not only because of the importance of her work, but also because of the quality of the translations. Anne Maria Bankay and Paulette Ramsay are gifted and experienced scholars. They bring to the difficult task of translating the literary text, years of experience, studying, translating, reading, writing about, and teaching Latin American and hispanophone Caribbean literature. We are grateful for this exciting new collection in English, from an interesting author, brought to us by two very competent and careful translators. This English version has been able to capture the moods, the atmosphere, the subtle ironies embedded in the narrative, as well as the rhythm of Contreras' prose...

Beyond My Wildest Dreams: A Memoir

Price
113.80 BBD

In this memoir, the author sets out on a fascinating journey that takes him back to the simple, rural settings of the tiny island of Barbados where he grew up. The narrative transitions to inner city Brooklyn, during the turbulent 1960s when the civil rights movement was seeking to dismantle the ugly practices of racism in the U.S. The author credits his Barbadian upbringing with his successes in athletics and academics. He provides a unique perspective on what it was like to be one of only a handful of black biochemists conducting discovery research in the pharmaceutical industry during the last three decades of the twentieth century.

Blackness Visible: Essays on Philosophy and Race

Price
107.40 BBD

Charles W. Mills makes visible in the world of mainstream philosophy some of the crucial issues of the black experience. Ralph Ellison's metaphor of black invisibility has special relevance to philosophy, whose demographic and conceptualized "whiteness" has long been a source of wonder and complaint to racial minorities. Mills points out the absence of any philosophical narrative theorizing and detailing the centrality of race to the recent history of the West, such as feminists have articulated for gender domination.
