Black Travelers, Writers and Activists in Africa and the Diaspora

Episode 76 of Africa Past and Present — the podcast about African history, culture, and politics — is now available.

In this episode, Professor David Killingray (Emeritus, Goldsmiths College, University of London) speaks on the often-neglected role of African travelers and intermediaries in 19th-century Africa; black writers and activists in Victorian Britain; and the significance of documenting lived experiences of Africans to better understanding processes of historical change.

Africa Past and Present is hosted by Peter Alegi and Peter Limb and co-produced by Matrix — the Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences — and the Department of History at Michigan State University.
