This anti-slavery monument facing the Gambia river is situated in Albreda / Juffureh, a village, that is connected to Kunta Kinte, an 18th-century African, captured as an adolescent and sold into slavery in the United States.

The novel "Roots" follows his life and the lives of his descendants in the U.S. down to the author Alex Haley. The novel was followed by a hugely popular television adaptation.

Video: Eric Foner introduces his book The Fiery Trial (YouTube)


In this landmark work of deep scholarship and insight, Eric Foner gives us the definitive history of Lincoln and the end of slavery in America. Foner begins with Lincoln's youth in Indiana and Illinois and follows the trajectory of his career across an increasingly tense and shifting political terrain from Illinois to Washington, D.C. Although “naturally anti-slavery” for as long as he can remember, Lincoln scrupulously holds to the position that the Constitution protects the institution in the original slave states. But the political landscape is transformed in 1854 when the Kansas-Nebraska Act makes the expansion of slavery a national issue.


A man of considered words and deliberate actions, Lincoln navigates the dynamic politics deftly, taking measured steps, often along a path forged by abolitionists and radicals in his party. Lincoln rises to leadership in the new Republican Party by calibrating his politics to the broadest possible antislavery coalition. As president of a divided nation and commander in chief at war, displaying a similar compound of pragmatism and principle, Lincoln finally embraces what he calls the Civil War's “fundamental and astounding” result: the immediate, uncompensated abolition of slavery and recognition of blacks as American citizens.


Foner's Lincoln emerges as a leader, one whose greatness lies in his capacity for moral and political growth through real engagement with allies and critics alike. This powerful work will transform our understanding of the nation's greatest president and the issue that mattered most. MORE

Slavery was one the regrettable parts of American history during much of the 18th and 19th centuries until formally abolished by the 13th Amendment in December of 1865. During this period of slavery, rice, cotton, and sugar plantations worked by slaves were abundant, especially in the south.


Today many of the original plantations and buildings are gone with a remaining few converted to museums. Of the ones preserved, Oak Alley in Vacherie, Louisiana is undoubtedly one of the most scenic. Its distinguishing feature is a double row of 300-year-old oak trees running 800ft (240m) long towards the main house.


This plantation has also been featured in many shows and movies throughout the years, most famously “Interview with the Vampire” from 1994 starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.


I captured this picture on a nice foggy morning when the sun was piercing through the fog and trees.

'Memory for the Slaves” by Scandinavian artist Clara Sornas. The memorial is located on the original site of the slave market. Under pressure from the Royal Navy the Sultan of Zanzibar officially abolished slavery on the island in 1873. However, in reality, slavery continued unofficially for another three decades, principally at the hands of the wealthy slave and ivory trader Tippu Tip.

The quickly deteriorating sculpture at the base of the statue of Edward Colston in the Centre of Bristol, the scupture has now been moved closer to the statue and the original boat shape dismantled. maybe a health and safety issue ?

This may appear to be the kind of shot that any tourist would take. It was however the scene of unspeakable cruelty and one of the places where slaves were incarcerated prior to transportation around the world. Over a period of 300 years tens of millions of Africans passed through locations such as this. Africans in collusion with Europeans plied the population with rum and when their victims were incapacitated they were taken as families to the underground dungeons here. In the same way that we should not forget 9/11 we should not forget those who suffered in those times. Nor should we forget the millions who live in slavery today - child workers held in sweat shops, women trapped into the sex industry and those controlled by people-traffickers.

Senpai, let's play a sexual journey into the depths of hell :ь

I clicked this picture some times ago in a rail station of north Kolkata. The local train was standing in a platform. Two men were talking to each other in the train. Here a pigeon flying high in front of me. This picture told a story, the flying bird symbolize freedom and the two men inside the train symbolize slavery.

Terror issues forth from the male, illuminates his essential nature and his basic purpose.
