The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) celebrated 2004 as the year to commemorate the struggle against slavery and its abolition. The Ghanaian government’s National Slave Route Project Committee held an international conference on transatlantic slavery as part of that initiative. This collection is the result of that conference, with the inclusion of a few essays from the National Conference on the Slave Trade in 2003. The conference brought together more than 400 participants; government ministers, UNESCO and diplomatic representatives, and scholars from Africa, the Caribbean, Australia, Europe and the United States. Twenty-nine articles and statements are included organized by three main themes: landmarks, legacies, and expectations.
