Race and Radicalism in the Age of Atlantic Slavery

Jared Hickman

  • Establishes a rich transnational network for understanding Atlantic slavery, challenging traditional views of race, religion, and globalization
  • Recasts responses to slavery by Voltaire, the Shelleys, William Blake, G.W.F. Hegel, Karl Marx, Frederick Douglass, and the astronomer Benjamin Banneker
