Book News Annotation:

The essays in this collection originally were presented during the Diaspora Paradigms conference held in 2001 at Michigan State University. The 12 essays address new and familiar topics on the diasporic histories of black people from innovative perspectives. Topics range from slavery and emancipation to transnational and diasporic experiences, and from social and political activism to political and cultural identity. Editors Curry (history and ethnic studies, U. of Nebraska), Duke (Africana studies, U. of South Florida), Smith (Ph.D. candidate, comparative black history, Michigan State U.), and 11 authors contributed to the collection.

Synopsis:

This groundbreaking collection addresses both new and familiar topics with fresh perspectives to produce original and thought-provoking scholarship on the diasporic histories of black peoples. Through a variety of methodologies and theoretical constructs, the contributors plumb a wide range of localities to engage many important subjects, including slavery and emancipation, transnational and diasporic experiences, social and political activism, and political and cultural identity. In doing so, they offer insightful and thought provoking studies, highlight new areas of inquiry in the African diaspora, and in many cases transcend geographical and national boundaries. The probing and meticulously woven narratives of this collection combine to show the vibrant histories of peoples of African descent.
