After the abolition of slavery in 1897, Zanzibar's Islamic courts became central institutions where former slaves negotiated socio-economic participation. Drawing upon difficult-to-read Islamic court records in Arabic, as well as marriage and divorce registers, this study sheds light on the island's history of gender, social and racial identity.
