Historical Fiction and Historical Reality in a Caribbean Plantation Society (Podcast)

In this podcast, the Surinamese author Cynthia McLeod – who specializes in historical fiction – is in conversation with Dr. Audra A. Diptee of the History Watch Project. They discuss the relationship between history and literature. They also discuss the fascinating story of Elizabeth Sampson – a free black woman in eighteenth century Suriname who owned more than 10 planations and over 1,000 slaves.

Credits: This episode would not have been possible without the support of the Centre for Transcultural Analysis at Carleton University (carleton.ca/ctca/).  Voice credits go to Lina Crompton for the introduction.  This episode was produced by Dr. Audra A. Diptee.
