"This book makes a valuable contribution to the study of the black immigrant workers of Guatemala."

"A welcome contribution both because Caribbean coast laborers have received relatively little attention and because Opie does such an excellent job of placing black migrants at the center of Guatemalan and Caribbean history."

"Sheds new light on the conditions facing African American workers who migrated to Guatemala…An invaluable and unique perspective on transnational labor organizing in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that has been largely overlooked."
--The Journal of African American History
