Summary

Offers important new perspectives on the African diaspora in North America.

Drawing on the work of social scientists from geographic, historical, sociological, and political science perspectives, this volume offers new perspectives on the African diaspora in the United States and Canada. It has been approximately four centuries since the first Africans set foot in North America, and although it is impossible for any text to capture the complete Black experience on the continent, the persistent legacy of Black inequality and the winds of dramatic change are inseparable parts of the current African diaspora experience. In addition to comparing and contrasting the experiences and geographic patterns of the African diaspora in the United States and Canada, the book also explores important distinctions between the experiences of African Americans and those of more recent African and Afro-Caribbean immigrants.

John W. Frazier is Professor of Geography at Binghamton University, State University of New York. He is the coeditor (with Eugene L. Tettey-Fio) of Race, Ethnicity, and Place in a Changing America, also published by SUNY Press. Joe T. Darden is Professor of Geography at Michigan State University. He is the coeditor (with Curtis Stokes and Richard W. Thomas) of The State of Black Michigan, 1967–2007. Norah F.
