The Other African Americans: Contemporary African and Caribbean Families in the United States available in Paperback
America's black population is becoming increasingly diverse and the presence of Caribbean and, especially, African immigrants continues to grow throughout the country. The Other African Americans seeks to broaden our understanding of these groups by exploring the changing intraracial dynamics among African Americans as new immigrants settle in the U.S. and become Americans. This edited volume of original research provides historical and contemporary information on African and Caribbean individuals and families, addressing particular topical areas covering the most salient issues facing these immigrants today.
