The New Black Studies Series


Acquiring Editor: Dawn Durante
Series Editors: Darlene Clark Hine and Dwight A. McBride

The study of peoples of African descent crosses boundaries of region, culture, and nation-state. It is at once comparative and diasporic in perspective and methodology. The New Black Studies Series will advance the intellectual arsenal of this discipline by publishing books that offer provocative and sophisticated explorations of the complexities of black people's experiences with dispersal, domination, enslavement, emancipation, colonialism, and racism.
