Comparative History of Black People in Diaspora
Edited by Darlene Clark Hine and Jacqueline McLeod
Suggests new paradigms for the study of Blacks in diaspora.
"The 18 papers in this volume are original, clearly written, and of consistently high quality. Organized in four parts--'Comparative Diaspora Historiography,' 'Identity and Culture,' 'Domination and Resistance,' and 'Geo-Social History and the Atlantic World'--these essays complement each other in a way that makes the whole even more valuable than the sum of the parts."
The essays assembled in Crossing Boundaries reflect the international dimensions, commonalities, and discontinuities in the histories of diasporan communities of color. People of African descent in the New World (the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean) share a common set of experiences: domination and resistance, slavery and emancipation, the pursuit of freedom, and struggle against racism. No single explanation can capture the varied experiences of Black people in diaspora.
Crossing Boundaries probes differences embedded in Black ethnicities and helps to discover and to weave into a new understanding the threads of experience, culture, and identity across diasporas. Contributors include Allison Blakely, Kim Butler, Frederick Cooper, George Fredrickson, David Barry Gaspar, Jack P. Green, Thomas Holt, Earl Lewis, Elliott Skinner, and Rosalyn Terborg-Penn.

The essays assembled in Crossing Boundaries reflect the international dimensions, commonalities, and discontinuities in the histories of diasporan communities of color. People of African descent in the the New World (the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean) share a common set of experiences: domination and resistance, slavery and emancipation, the pursuit of freedom, and straggle against racism. Knowledge of individual societies is illuminated by the study and comparison of other cultural histories; black diasporan experience cannot be captured in a single interpretation. Crossing Boundaries elucidates the complexities inherent in teaching a history which is at once disparate and coherent. This volume, growing out of the Comparative History of Black People in Diaspora Symposium held at Michigan State University, elaborates the profound relationship between curriculum and pedagogy.
