The British Library, London
Open until Tue 16 Feb 2016
Beautiful manuscripts, historic film and sound recordings, books, photographs, and woven and printed textiles offer a unique insight into a profound and engaging literary culture with centuries-old written heritage existing alongside ancient oral traditions.
An example is offered by the published autobiographies and other literary works of men and women – Olaudah Equiano the most famous among them – whose writing became crucial in the struggle against both the slave trade and the system of enslavement itself.
