Slavery and the heritage of slavery have been important in many African societies. It has been so important that many Africans have tried to suppress memories about them. This chapter gathers together three very diverse documents which inform us Africans' thought on the institution of slavery. The first comes from Cameroon. Ahmadou Sehou, a scholar from that country, has found documents associated with Lamido Iyawa Adamou, a powerful chief who defended slavery and maintained control over slaves in his chiefdom until his death in 1966. The second document comes from Ute Röschenthaler, who did research in an area that was on the major trade route to the coast in Cameroon and southeastern Nigeria. The third document comes from Ghana, known as the Gold Coast during British rule. These documents indicate the diverse ways Africans related to slavery and the slave trade.
