This study critically reviews historical narratives on Black enslaved people in the Ottoman Empire to better comprehend their self-conscious efforts to build communities despite the conditions forced upon them and their legacies in Modern Turkey. Inquiring about these entities leads one to trail some complexities lost to the narration of the past, primarily Black enslaved people’s agencies. Therefore, it sets out to explore their agencies and the dynamic nature of their living ways through breaking down many of the concepts, narratives, and historiographies that appear neutral, thus channeling many historical actors to the taxonomy of humanness. Through this framework, the present dissertation aspires to indicate Black enslaved people’s subsistences in the history of Turkey to challenge the process to become discernable by bringing the heterogeneities and complexities of historical African diasporas in the Ottoman Empire and Turkey to light
