Summary

Global historical events are too often recounted exclusively through European and American voices. African Voices of the Global Pastexplores six major historical developments of global significance-the Atlantic slave trade, industrialization, colonialism, the World Wars, decolonization, and feminism-from an African perspective. Voices emerge throughout the text in the form of primary sources, exploring the personal accounts of individuals and enabling students to look beyond the indistinct figures of Africans in European and American accounts and see the people directly involved and affected by the major global changes they experienced. With contributed chapters from renowned African history scholars and content spanning 500 years, African Voices of the Global Pastoffers a unique view of history from a traditionally overlooked perspective. This book is perfect supplement for world history and African history courses seeking a compelling narrative of major world events.
