Two New Teaching Guides Published

ALP publishes new teaching guides.

The Antislavery Literature Project has published two new teaching guides, part of a series designed to support teachers incorporating slave narratives and antislavery texts into their course syllabi.  The first guide is to The History of Mary Prince (1831), the first women's slave narrative published in Great Britain.  This text was influential at a point when Great Britain was in the midst of legislative efforts to abolish slavery in its Caribbean colonies.  The second guide is to The Interesting Life of Olaudah Equiano (1789), a major and well-known autobiography by an establishing figure of Black Britain.  Both guides contain introductory essays and cross-cultural teaching guides.
