What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Through the life story of a single individual, Prieto illuminates the important role African forms of association and religious worldviews played in shaping the experiences of enslaved and free blacks. An important contribution to the understanding of blacks' resistance to slavery, this is a welcome addition in the fields of Cuban, Caribbean, and Latin American history, African diaspora studies, and religious studies more broadly."—Matt D. Childs, University of South Carolina



The enslaved African known in Cuba as Juan Nepomuceno Prieto is a fascinating example of an Atlantic Creole. Working through Prieto's voluminous trial record and the registers of Africans brought to Cuba, Lovejoy shows how Prieto's eventual downfall was tied to the escalation of racial fears of slave conspiracies."—Jane Landers, Vanderbilt University
