 "This multitiered analysis of a group that lies adjacent to (but not within the indigenous-Spanish dynamic at the heart of the bulk of Latin American academic discourse on race and ethnicity leads the author to explore fundamental Latin American dilemmas of citizenship and nationality. She makes a case for full participation in Peruvian life at all levels for those of African descent." Choice

 "Filled with keen insights and surprising challenges for the literature on the African Diaspora, Latin American Studies, and the politics of multiculturalism in general." Social Forces

 "Contributes not only to a better understanding of contemporary Peru, where the question of blackness is often unexplored and Afro-descendent peoples are not easily included in the countries ethnic geography, but it also importantly interrogates the ways in which scholars and activists have constructed race." Routledge
