A son of Africa : the slave narrative of Olaudah Equiano( Visual )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A docudrama based on the book, The interesting narrative of the life of Oloudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vaasa the African, which was the first influential slave autobiography. When it was published in 1789, it fueled a growing anti-slavery movement in the U.S. and England. This production employs dramatic reconstruction, archival material and interviews with scholars. Equiano's narrative begins in the West African village where he was kidnapped into slavery in 1756. He was shipped to a Virginia plantation and then later sold again to a British naval officer. Here he learned to read and write, became a skilled trader, eventually bought his freedom and married into English society where he became a leading abolitionist
Hidden empire( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catch a Fire" is an award-winning documentary/drama that tells the story of a baptist deacon, Paul Bogle, often described as a 19th century Malcom X, and George William Gordon, a wealthy mulatto politician. 30 years after the end of slavery in Jamaica, Bogle was the leader of the Morant Bay Rebellion of 1865. This rebellion provoked outrage in Victorian Britain and had a major impact on colonial attitudes to race and Empire. The story is constructed using extensive interviews with Paul Bogle's grandson as well as archival material
