“The Black Atlantic: A Translocal Civilization”. John Hope Franklin Young Scholars Program. May 12, 2012
Lecture; The United States is one of several major centers of cultural creativity and wealth-production in the Black Atlantic world, but it is not the most populous. Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, and Jamaica are also central to the cultural history of the Black Atlantic. We can best understand the history of African Americans in the US when we consider the differences and the cultural flows among these Black Atlantic capitals.
