HIS 345 Africa during the Era of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade 3 credits

This course examines African history during the period of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. It will provide an overview of important economic and political developments in African societies between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. It will focus on issues such as African participation in the trade and resistance from both slaves and leaders. The course will also highlight African contributions to the Americas. In addition to using a variety of data sources to make sense of the magnitude and shape of this forced migration, we will also study historical debates about the impact of the slave trade on African societies.
