In the Shadow of Slavery: Africa’s Food Legacy in the Atlantic World

October 23, 2019 @ 4:10 pm - 7:00 pm

Today Judith Carney will be having a lecture on Africa’s Food Legacy in the Atlantic World. A striking feature of plantation-era history is the number of first-person accounts that credit the enslaved with the introduction of specific foods, all previously grown in Africa. This lecture lends support to these observations by identifying the crops that European witnesses attributed to slave agency and by engaging the ways that African subsistence staples arrived, and became established, in the Americas.
