Reversing Sail: A History of the African Diaspora

October 25, 2019

Discussing the new edition of Reversing Sail, author Michael A. Gomez joins editor Debbie Gershenowitz to explore the major updates to this book in relation to the study of the African Diaspora, and the importance of how we tell and teach history from a non-western perspective. From discussions on the cover to why the book begins in antiquity rather than with the transatlantic slave trade, Michael and Debbie journey through the intersectionality, both parallel and contradictory, of race, culture and ideas of gender and class within the black experience.  

The second edition of Reversing Sail is available in November.
