The African Studies Review in partnership with the Dakar Institute will host the African Studies Review Pipeline for Emerging African Studies Scholars workshop, immediately preceding the conference on Thursday July 4, 2019. This workshop will be run entirely in French.
I have been collecting books on Africa—all parts, all kinds—for 50 years. I'd love to find a home for some of them. Ideally this home would be with a person who welcomes all genres and points-of-view. I have some original African Writers Series titles and some coffee table titles. I know that neither libraries nor African Outreach centers want these books. What to do?

On behalf of the Voyages Team, it is a pleasure to announce the launch of the second version of the slave voyages website today at https://slavevoyages.org/
We thank our collaborators, supporters, and users. We hope that the website will continue serving as a site for education, research, and remembrance of that tragic chapter in human history.

1st Biennial Rocky Mountain Workshop on African History
I'm looking for suggestions on any historically-based films that cover South Africa prior to apartheid. Beyond "The Life and Times of Sarah Baartman" and the Zulu-based material, does anyone have suggestions on film that covers this period? Film that explores the eighteenth or nineteenth centuries would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
