You are going back to your former high school as a visiting instructor to discuss the transatlantic slave trade. Your former high school assigned the book Saltwater Slavery and you’re visiting to discuss it with students in class. To help you prepare for such a visit, list and elaborate 3-5 points that you would want to discuss with students about the book’s effectiveness in highlighting African perspectives on the transatlantic slave trade. Some questions you might want to address include: How does Smallwood humanize African experiences in the book? What sources did she use in crafting her narrative and arguments? To connect better with students, you might think back to what you learned in high school about the transatlantic slave trade, how does the book compare (or contrast) with what you learned previously? What would you want students to take away from your discussion of the book with them?

Do you need help with your assignment?
