Nemata Amelia Ibitayo Blyden - African Americans and Africa: A New History — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, July 23, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Starting with the slave trade, Blyden’s study charts the long, complex, and often ambivalent relationship between African Americans and Africa. Attentive to the wide range of African American identities, Blyden, associate professor of history and international affairs at George Washington University and author of West Indians in West Africa, 1808–1880, reads this often overlooked history through a careful examination of different diasporas variously defined by region, ethnicity, and immigration.
