GUEST,riverboat annie Self-Promotion on Mudcat (88* d) RE: Self-Promotion on Mudcat 14 Jan 07


Well, someone took my perfectly legitimate request to explain "African Diaspora" off the thread so I will explain it myself for those who may not be familiar with the concept.

"The term diaspora, describes the experience of people who, through slavery, colonialism, imperialism, and migration, have been forced to leave their native lands." (Funai 1998, 417) as quoted by Black feminist Patricia Hill Collins from Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and The Politics of Empowerment....a must read for anyone interested in understanding where Azizi is coming from.

back to my riverboat now....(the cloneheads are too overzealous for me)
