Born in Blackness and São Tomé -- ep. by Howard Rambsy II

This episode of Remarkable Receptions provides a short take on "one of the most important economic circuits in the history of the world,” to use Howard French's words. 

The episode focuses on the small island of São Tomé, which was played a foundational, and in retrospect infamous, role in the formation of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.  French discusses São Tomé in his book Born in Blackness: Africa, Africans, and the Making of the Modern World, 1471 to the Second World War (2021). 

The episode is read by Kassandra Timm.
