Anita Rupprecht joins Thomas Thurston on this episode of Slavery and Its Legacies to discuss her project , “‘Liberated Africans’, Indenture and Resistance in the British Caribbean 1807-1828”. The project explores the ways in which colonial labour relations were reconfigured in Caribbean slave societies between the 1807 abolition of the British slave trade and the passing of the Emancipation Act in 1833. By focusing on the lives of so-called indentured ‘Re-captured Africans’, and their experiences ‘from below’, the project analyses the ways in which the movement from slavery to freedom can be understood in terms of a wider imperial continuum of coerced labour forms.
