This catalogue was published on the occasion of the Event Series “200 Years Later…”, commemorating the 200 year anniversary of the official Abolition of the Maafa (Transatlantic Slave Trade), Berlin, 23-30.11.2008. It was awarded UNESCO’s Toussaint Louverture Medal for its “contribution to the struggle against domination, racism and intolerance”.

At the centre stands the celebration of the much neglected and still widely unknown manifold strategies of resistance of African people / people of African descent against one of the greatest atrocities in the history of mankind and the cultural and artistic practices they developed on the basis of this resilience.

The publication on hand features portraits of some of the protagonists of this resistance, a specifically researched resistance timeline, as well as essays by eminent scholars such as Louise Marie Diop-Maes, Silviane A. Diouf, Joseph Olabiyi Babalola Yai, Howard Dodson, Horace Campbell, Rosa Amelia Plumelle-Uribe and others.
