Gwendolyn Midlo Hall has written an impressive and wide-ranging book based on research in archives in Africa, America, and Europe. Africans in Colonial Louisiana is a major contribution to the history of black Americans and the study of slavery in the Americas. This book, like Michael Mullins’s two studies, Flight and Rebellion and Africa in America, along with Orlando Patterson’s Sociology of Slavery and Peter Wood’s Black Majority, broadens our understanding of how Africans became Afro-Caribbeans and Afro-Americans in the eighteenth century.
