to my book Claims to Memory: Beyond Slavery and Emancipation in the French Caribbean (2006).

The idea of conducting these oral interviews originated in 2010 as a follow-up investigation to my book Claims to Memory: Beyond Slavery and Emancipation in the French Caribbean (2006). The 200th anniversary of the first abolition of slavery in the French Caribbean in 1993, and even more so the 150th anniversary of the second abolition of slavery in 1998, marked turning points in the way that Guadeloupian and Martiniquais societies have expressed their slave heritage.

Slavery in the British and French Caribbean refers to slavery in the parts of the Caribbean dominated by France or the British Empire. In the Caribbean, Great Britain colonised the islands of St. Kitts and Barbados in 1623 and 1627 respectively, and. Kitts and Barbados in 1623 and 1627 respectively, and later, Jamaica in 1655. These and other Caribbean colonies became the center of wealth and the focus of the slave trade for the growing British Empire.

Why do the people of the French Caribbean still continue to be haunted by the memory of their slave past more than one hundred and fifty years after the abolition of slavery? What process led to the divorce of their collective memory of slavery and emancipation from France's portrayal of these historical phenomena? How are Martinicans and Guadeloupeans today transforming the silences of the past into historical and cultural manifestations rooted in the Caribbean? This book answers these questions by relating the 1998 controversy surrounding the 150th anniversary of France's abolition of slavery to the period of the slave regime spanning the late Enlightenment and the French Revolution. By comparing a diversity of documents―including letters by slaves, free people of color, and planters, as well as writings by the philosophes, royal decrees, and court cases―the author untangles the complex forces of the slave regime that have shaped collective memory. The current nationalization of the memory of slavery in France has turned these once peripheral claims into passionate political and cultural debates.
