Two Princes of Calabar by Randy J. Sparks
Book DescriptionIn 1767, two 'princes' of a ruling family in the port of Old Calabar, on the slave coast of Africa, were ambushed and captured by English slavers. The princes were themselves slave traders who were betrayed by African competitors - and so began their own extraordinary odyssey of enslavement. Their story, written in their own hand, survives as a rare firsthand account of the Atlantic slave experience.

Africans in the Old South, Hardback (April 2016)
The Atlantic slave trade was the largest forced migration in history, yet most of its stories are lost. Randy Sparks examines the few remaining reconstructed experiences of West Africans who lived in the South between 1740 and 1860. Their stories highlight the diversity of struggles that confronted every African who arrived on American shores.
Where the Negroes are Masters, Hardback (January 2014)» View all books by Randy J. Sparks
Annamaboe - largest slave trading port on the Gold Coast - was home to African merchants whose partnerships with Europeans made the town an integral part of Atlantic webs of exchange. The author recreates the outpost's feverish bustle and brutality, tracing the entrepreneurs, black and white, who thrived on a lucrative traffic in human beings.
