The Slaves of Surinam
Narrator ANDREW FAULDS
Professor Alan Counter and Professor David Evans , two black Americans from Harvard University. went in search of their African roots. They found, living on the bank of the South American rivers in Surinam, the Djuka, descendants of runaway West African slaves who fought for and won their freedom 100 years before emancipation. The Djuka have managed to preserve many aspects of their original African cultures. For Professors Counter and Evans it was like entering a time-machine; here was living proof of how their ancestors would have lived ten generations ago back in Africa. They had found their roots. But the whole experience was also something of a culture shock for these sophisticated American academics. Written and presented by JOHN PAUL DAVIDSON Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and PETER JONES
