The Black Atlantic is a concept developed in the 1990s to discuss the arts, culture, social relations and history of African peoples who have been dispersed by the Transatlantic Slave Trade and colonialism. This book looks at physical and other memorials which talk back to the legacy of the Transatlantic slave trade.
