Africans and Asians in the Americas have for two centuries sustained a tradition of collaborative radical political and cultural connections heretofore undocumented in the literature of the West. For several centuries, Africans and Asians in the Americas have been linked by their experience of class and racial exploitation and oppression, and their resistance to it. With the formal abolition of African slavery arose the trade in Asiatic coolies (or contract laborers), bringing Asian laborers, often on the same ships that had transported captured Africans, to the same plantation societies. In this common and often overlapping diasporic experience, shared traditions of resistance and struggle have developed for liberation and equality. African Americans and Asian Americans have created new forms in culture (from music to cuisine to clothing) and politics (from shared movement ideologies to organizations), and each group has influenced, inspired, and borrowed from the other. This anthology represents the best of scholarship, creative writing, and activism from this long, glorious tradition. Book jacket.
