Learning Goal: I’m working on a global studies discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
In his chapter on “Victim Diasporas,” Cohen notes that unlike other “victim” diaspora groups like Jews, Irish, or Armenians, which were formed as the result of a single set of events, the African diaspora was created over several centuries as a result of the Atlantic Slave Trade, slavery, and the development of race as a social and political construct. In addition, unlike these other groups, the African Diaspora has a complicated conception of “homeland,” given the history of slavery and imperialism.
How has this complicated history informed the development of identity for individuals and groups in the African Diaspora? How has the diasporic experience(s) shaped relations with Africa, both as an idealized “homeland” and with modern-day African nations? Discuss at least two examples in your response.
NOTE: Remember that the African-American experience is just one of many within the African Diaspora as a whole; what about Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Latinos, or more recent African immigrants?https://teachingamericanhistory.org/document/what-…
