TOPIC/THEME: Africans & the Challenges Faced after the Abolition of Slavery & The Atlantic Slave Trade An important area of research in the study of the African Diaspora is the period immediately following the Abolition of the Slave Trade and the Abolition of Slavery! Abolition freed tens of thousands of enslaved Africans in many slave-holding societies in which the British, French, Dutch, Spanish and American slave holders had subjected millions of African peoples to a life of slavery, dehumanization and marginalization – a majority working against their will and having little to look forward to in an uncertain and uncomfortable future. Despite varying attempts to free themselves, enslaved Africans almost always failed to fully achieve this goal, leaving them frustrated and brutalized. The one exception of a successful rebellion occurred in early 19th century in San Domingue/Haiti. After over three hundred years of enslavement and routine inhumane treatment, enslaved Africans, began experiencing true emancipation in the 19th century; they were finally freed from bondage! What were the possibilities that lay ahead for these newly freed men, women and families? What were some of the obstacles and hindrances they encountered? What were the results? How were they able to overcome their problems? This semester’s research assignment focuses on the aftermath of the Abolition of Slavery and the Slave Trade in any of the New World areas and societies! Students are expected to write an essay of, at least, five full pages in length, relating to the aftermath of the abolition of the slave system. Students can focus their research on how and why abolition came about and the effects and reaction and/or impact on the lives of freed individuals and/or their families. Students can also focus their efforts/attention on how some African peoples and their communities have fared following abolition. Students can discuss the motivations/factors that led to abolition and whether abolition was truly devised to protect the former slave holders as opposed to the former enslaved workers. NOTE: The following terms - Diaspora, Abolition, Emancipation and Resilience must be defined, included or incorporated within the text of the essay, preferably in the introduction. Final submissions must be presented in a folder and must include all notes / rough drafts, etc. taken and made during the writing of the assignment.
