Today August 1st marks another observation and celebration of the abolition of slavery in the British West Indies. In addition, UNESCO marks August 23rd as International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition. Hence as part of my 2016 theme reading, I will focus on books which tell the story of transatlantic slavery.
1. Mamie Garrison, Teresa McRae
2. Slave Cry, Drew Griot
3. The Bargain, Episode One, Vanessa Riley
4. Love In Another Lifetime, Victoria A. Key
