Summary

This important book brings together for the first time works by four major black writers who published between 1770 and 1793: Ukawsaw Gronniosaw, John Marrant, Quobna Ottobah Cugoano, and Olaudah Equiano. Crisscrossing the Atlantic Ocean from West Africa to the West Indies, from the American mainland to the British Isles, these men share a dramatic story of captivity and liberation, wayfaring and adventure. They share, too, a story of spiritual salvation, of adapting the Christian faith to their own heritage and to their own needs. Through their autobiographies and essays, letters and addresses, these writers helped lay the groundwork for black Atlantic culture.
