Beyond the core contribution of Melville Herskovits to the legacy of Africa in the New World, Araujo assembles in this formidable volume, established Atlantic scholars who collectively focus on African heritage in Brazil and by extension, on the connections between memories of slavery on both sides of the Atlantic.
