Scattered Africa: Faces and Voices of the African Diaspora moves from the violent scattering of African people across the earth to their current participation in a global community. The focus here is on their presence in and contributions to the Atlantic World. Portraying the unremunerated economic contributions of Africans and their descendants to the wealth and power of the Americas, it also highlights elements of African culture that characterize contemporary Pan-American life. Emphasizing both similarities and differences, scholars and community leaders—from nations such as Argentina and Uruguay in which the African past and presence is little known, and Suriname and Brazil where African cultural forms are too obvious to deny—discuss their discovery of their African heritage and the scattered transnational community that constitutes the African Diaspora.
