    "This is one of the best books that I have ever read about the history of Louisiana and Africans in America. It is very straightforward and to the point and doesn't gloss over anything that would bring shame to America. I love the honesty of this book. "

    "perfect reviews but not many"
  • Sandra Chavez
    Written on April 28, 2018
    "Although a number of important studies of American slavery have explored the formation of slave cultures in the English colonies, no book until now has undertaken a comprehensive assessment of the development of the distinctive Afro-Creole culture of colonial Louisiana. This culture, based upon a separate language community with its own folkloric, musical, religious, and historical traditions, was created by slaves brought directly from Africa to Louisiana before 1731. It still survives as the acknowledged cultural heritage of tens of thousands of people"

    "This work will be particularly interesting for scholars specializing in the South and in the various forms of cultural diffusion that went on there due to the slave trade, but it is not strictly a narrative biography. No real particular individual fully has their life story mapped out here. It is an interesting work of sociology and history, but perhaps not necessarily even a biography to begin with."

    "Fantastic book about the history of the slave trade in Louisiana. It's a dark piece of history but something we all need to remember. "
