The African Diaspora
African Origins and New World IdentitiesBook - 1999
The purpose of this book is to contribute to the debate between those who believe that the African origin of blacks in western society is central to their identity and those who deny that proposition. How did Africans manage to create a viable life for themselves after they got here? How were they able to negotiate the social, political, cultural, and other space they encountered?
