Strange New Land

Africans in Colonial America

Peter H. Wood

  • Explores the history of slavery and the struggle for freedom before the United States became a nation and documents the transformation of slavery from a brutal form of indentured servitude to a full-blown system of racial domination.
  • Focuses on how Africans survived this brutal process - and ultimately shaped the contours of American racial slavery through numerous means
  • Surveys black social and cultural life, superbly illustrating how such a diverse group of people from the shores of West and Central Africa became a community in North America
