Historian Abdullah R. Muhammad examines a previously little-known and virtually untold aspect of Delaware’s history—the hidden role of Africans in the often brutal mercantile expansionism by European colonizers in the 17th century. Swedish and Finnish communities on the East Coast, called New Sweden, played a significant role in forming the foundation upon which Delaware was eventually built.
Abdullah Muhammad is an educator, historian, and board member of the New Sweden Centre. He lives in Wilmington, DE.
