Ana Lucia Araujo is a full professor in the Department of History of Howard University in Washington DC. Her research explores the history, memory, and heritage of slavery. She authored or edited over ten books on these themes, including Public Memory of Slavery: Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic (2010) and Shadows of the Slave Past: Memory, Heritage and Slavery (2015). Since last November she is a member of the International Scientific Committee of the UNESCO Slave Route Project. Her latest single-authored book, Reparations for Slavery and the Slave Trade: A Transnational and Comparative History was published by Bloomsbury in 2017.


Reparations for Slavery and the Slave Trade: A Transnational and Comparative History examines from a transnational perspective the history of the demands of reparations for slavery and the slave trade in the Americas, Europe, and Africa. This is the first book to offer a transnational narrative history of the financial, material, and symbolic reparations for slavery and the Atlantic slave trade. Drawing from the voices of various social actors who identified themselves as the victims of the Atlantic slave trade and slavery, Araujo illuminates the multiple dimensions of the demands of reparations, including the period of slavery, the emancipation era, the post-abolition period, and the present.
