About this product
- DescriptionMoving back and forth through the colonial and postcolonial eras of the American South and the Caribbean, the six essays in this volume take a fresh look at the regions' transnational linkages. With their focus on border zones, hybridity, and creolization, the essays challenge our tions about the cultural and ecomic trajectories of the African diaspora in this part of the world. For instance, was the movement of slaves seeking freedom in America always south to rth? Or was the movement of slaves in bondage always westward, from Africa to the Caribbean or America? One consequence of the work discussed in the volume is an expansion of the physical borders of the Caribbean-Southern sphere to include, for example, the Chesapeake Bay area. Lesser-kwn populations, such as the Black Semiles, also gain heightened visibility. Runaway slaves who first allied themselves with Florida Indians, the Black Semiles later migrated to the Bahamas. Other topics covered include foodways, environmental justice and Caribbean tourism, and religious or celebratory traditions of vodou, Jonkonnu, and Rocks.
