Over de rol van Anton de Kom in het bewustzijn van Suriname is het laatste woord nog niet geschreven. Wij slaven van Suriname (1934) is het boek waarmee het allemaal begon. Het indrukwekkende verhaal over de opstand van slaven in Suriname bracht in de jaren dertig in Nederlandse literaire kringen de pennen behoorlijk in beweging - en na de Tweede Wereldoorlog werd het een ...more
