Summary:
This text explores the legacy of slavery in African theological terms. Challenging the dominant approaches to the history and legacy of slavery in the British Empire, the contributors show that although the 1807 act abolished the slave trade, it did not end racism, notions of white supremacy, or the demonization of African people and Africa.
