Edited and with Notes by Shelly EversleyIntroduction by Robert Reid-Pharr In this truly astonishing eighteenth-century memoir, Olaudah Equiano recounts his remarkable life story, which begins when he is kidnapped in Africa as a boy and sold into slavery and culminates when he has achieved renown as a British antislavery advocate. The narrative is a strikingly beautiful monument to the startling combination of skill, cunning, and plain good luck that allowed him to win his freedom, write his story, and gain international prominence, writes Robert Reid-Pharr in his Introduction. He alerts us to the very concerns that trouble modern intellectuals, black, white, and otherwise, on both sides of the Atlantic. The text of this Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the definitive ninth edition of 1794, reflecting the author's final changes to his masterwork.

Shelly faces numerous challenges-a disastrous family reunion, a sister who...
Two days into the Summer Olympic Games, spectators got their first morsel of doping-related drama. Yulia Efimova, the Russian swimmer who was suspended for doping but still allowed to compete, placed first in her semifinal. In response, in front of a crowd of reporters, US swimmer Lilly King wagged her finger at Efimova. “I’m here to compete clean for the US. ”. Everyone got King’s meaning. But from the strictest purist’s perspective, no one at the Olympics is there to “compete clean. That’s not to say everyone competing at the Games is embroiled in a doping scandal. But most conversations about what athletes put inside their bodies to enhance athletic performance wholly ignore what athletes put on their bodies to enhance athletic performance. Today’s Olympic equipment—from algorithmically generated racing spikes to utrasonically bonded swimsuits to asymmetrical track bikes —are designed in labs, by researchers and engineers, to maximize human potential. Today’s elite athletes depend on these technologies, and can’t expect to score a metal without them. In 2016, most Olympic events have passed a significant inflection point. no longer do they test the mettle of an elite athlete. Today, they test the mettle of cyborgian, athlete-equipment dyads. “In my career I think about workers who work hard all day long, and athletes do similar things,” says Homayoon Kazerooni. A mechanical engineer at UC Berkeley, Kazerooni is the founder of SuitX, where he oversees the design of exoskeletons that enable industrial, medical, and military personnel to lift and squat for hours on end, and hoist items several times their... “The magnitude is different, and the duration is different,” he says. But ultimately, he says, his goal and the goal of athletic equipment designers is the same: To maximize performance. Or, perhaps more accurately, to augment it. Take AeroBlades, the latest piece of performance-enhancing tech from Nike. The company devoted years of research and hundreds of hours of wind tunnel testing to developing these tiny, 3D-printed teeth. The teeth, each one the shape of a tiny cresting wave, look inconspicuous from a distance. But apply a bunch of them to strategic swaths of a runner’s body, in the form of AeroBlade-studded tape or AeroBlade-embedded apparel, and you can improve the flow of air around the athlete—reducing drag and energy expenditure, and shaving... Several athletes in Rio chose to do this. over the weekend, the AeroBlades showed up on jerseys across different track events. From the US team, Allyson Felix, Shelly-Ann Fraser Price, English Gardner, and Ashton Eaton wore them. Mohamed Farah, who won the men’s 10,000 meter run, sported them too. The experts we spoke to outside of Nike told us they didn’t think AeroBlades would affect runners’ times by much, for a few reasons. For another, runners already sport myriad kinds of fashion and hair styles that could also influence wind drag. Still, those experts agreed: A competitive edge is a competitive edge. The American distance runner was spied wearing Nike’s tooth-studded tape last month , when he won the 10,000 meter-qualifying race at the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. At the 2012 London Games, Rupp earned a silver medal in that event with a time of 27:30. 90—less than half a second behind Great Britain’s Mo Farah (Rupp’s training partner, to add insult), who took gold with a time of 27:30:42. If Rupp had been... “With technology like this, you’re literally changing the environment around you,” Holmes says. runners and swimmers achieve a similar effect by shaving their body hair before a race. The most famous example in recent memory occurred at the 2008 Summer Olympics, when swimmers wearing Speedo’s full-body polyurethane LZR Racer suits shattered several world records. The suit, developed in Speedo’s Aqualab in Nottingham, England, could tighten a swimmer’s physique through compression. Copycat suits designed to trap air and increase buoyancy followed, and FINA, swimming’s governing body, banned them. “The argument was, this really isn’t the athlete anymore,” Holmes says. If a new piece of gear confers an advantages too great, too quickly, a sanctioning body will snuff it out.
