Hello H-CivWar readers,

today we feature the final part of our multipart video interview series with Ana-Lucia Araujo. We chat about the need for a museum devoted to the slave trade.

Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Ana-Lucia Araujo via Zoom. We talked about her new book Slavery in the Age of Memory
Engaging the Past
, which came out in October 2020 with Bloomsbury Academic. The interview is broken up so that you can easily use the material in class.

Ana Lucia Araujo is Professor of History at Howard University. She is the author of Public Memory of Slavery: Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic World (2010), Shadows of the Slave Past: Memory, Heritage and Slavery (2014), Brazil through French Eyes: A Nineteenth-Century Artist in Brazil (2015), and Reparations for Slavery and the Slave Trade: A Transnational and Comparative History (2017).
