Slave counterpoint : Black culture in the eighteenth-century Chesapeake and Lowcountry by Philip D Morgan( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the eve of the American Revolution, nearly three-quarters of all African Americans in mainland British America lived in two regions: the Chesapeake, centered in Virginia, and the Lowcountry, with its hub in South Carolina. Here, Philip Morgan compares and contrasts African American life in these two regional Black cultures, exploring the differences as well as the similarities. The result is a detailed and comprehensive view of slave life in the colonial American South."
Black experience and the empire( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work explores the lives of people of sub-Saharan Africa and their descendants, how they were shaped by empire, and how they in turn influenced the empire in everything from material goods to cultural style. The black experience varied greatly across space and over time. Accordingly, thirteen substantive essays and a scene-setting introduction range from West Africa in the sixteenth century, through the history of the slave trade and slavery down to the 1830s, to nineteenth- and twentieth-century participation of blacks in the empire as workers, soldiers, members of colonial elites, intellectuals, athletes, and musicians. No people were more uprooted and dislocated; or traveled more within the empire; or created more of a trans-imperial culture. In the crucible of the British empire, blacks invented cultural mixes that were precursors to our modern selves - hybrid, fluid, ambiguous, and constantly in motion
