The African slave trade was officially abolished in French Soudan (present-day Mali) by the colonial authorities in 1905, but effective emancipation of formerly enslaved populations was in fact a lengthy process, the repercussions of which were still felt long after Mali’s independence in 1960.
Dear H-French-Colonial Subscribers,
I'm forwarding this message on behalf of Brooke Wooldridge and Adam Silva of Florida International University. See below for an exciting new open-access resource on Haiti, in which several specialists on French colonial Saint-Domingue participated. The site is being launched for Haitian Heritage Month but will remain online indefinitely. It is a project of the wonderful full-text archive The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC), and includes links to sources in that collection.
