"Converging Identities is a volume of sixteen essays analyzing the issues of blackness and identity in the African Diaspora in global perspective, but focusing on the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Given the historical factors that prompted Africans to populate different parts of the world, the subject of blackness as a form of identity is relevant.
