Frères de race, amis de couleur: Diasporic Solidarities in the French Abolitionist Press

As the first French periodical directed by people of color, the Revue des Colonies (1834–42) was remarkable for its militant abolitionism, its attention to global Black writers and cultural figures, and its fostering of intellectual and political solidarities across the French colonial world and beyond. By attending to the networks of circulation that enabled the passage of emancipatory ideas across national and linguistic borders, this article argues for the significance of the Revue as a forebear of later iterations of Black internationalism.
