Full text not available from this repository.

Abstract

The African slave trade was officially abolished in French Soudan (present-day Mali) by the colonial authorities in 1905, but effective emancipation of formerly enslaved populations was in fact a lengthy process, the repercussions of which were still felt long after Mali’s independence in 1960. The documentary tells the story of those who resisted slavery by escaping slave masters and founding new independent and free communities in the district of Kayes in the first half of the 20th century. The film presents a unique audio-visual archive of slave emancipation.
