1. The first book on Maroons in the United States is coming out today. Slavery’s Exiles: The Story of the American Maroons is the work of Sylviane A. Diouf, an award-winning historian who is also the Schomburg Center’s own Curator of Digital Collections and Director of the Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute. 

Based on years of research Slavery’s Exiles presents a detailed portrait of the maroons; from isolated individuals to families and large communities. Who the maroons were, what led them to choose this way of life over alternatives, what forms of marronage they created, what their daily lives were like, how they organized themselves to survive, and how their particular story fits into the larger narrative of slave resistance are some of the many questions that the book seeks to answer.

Slavery’s Exiles, which is available in hardcover and e-book, can be previewed and purchased here and come to hear Dr. Diouf discuss her book at the Schomburg on February 13.
