Black Power in the Caribbean


ISBN: 9780813061887

Black Power studies have been dominated by the North American story, but after decades of scholarly neglect, the growth of "New Black Power Studies" has revitalized the field. Central to the current agenda are a critique of the narrow domestic lens through which U.S. Black Power has been viewed and a call for greater attention to international and transnational dimensions of the movement. Black Power in the Caribbean highlights the unique origins and causes of Black Power mobilization in the Caribbean and its relationship to Black Power in the United States, ultimately situating the historical roots and modern legacies of the movement in a wider, international context.

Edited by Kate Quinn, Chair of the Society for Caribbean Studies and lecturer in Caribbean history at the Institute of the Americas at University College London, is the coeditor of Politics and Power in Haiti.
