slaves-of-one-masterMatthew S. Hopper’s, Slaves of One Master: Globalization and Slavery in Arabia in the Age of Empire, a finalist for the Frederick Douglass Prize, explores the history of the African diaspora in Arabia in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The book links the personal stories of Africans to the impersonal global commodity chains their labor enabled, demonstrating how the growing demand for workers created by a global demand—including from the United States—for Persian Gulf products led to the enslavement of Africans in eastern Arabia. Hopper, Professor of History at California Polytechnic State University, will be in conversation with Eve M. Troutt Powell, C. Brown Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Tell This in My Memory: Stories of Enslavement from Egypt, Sudan and the Ottoman Empire.
