Caribbean Crossroads: Race, Identity, and Freedom Struggles

Edited by Lillian Guerra, Devyn Spence Benson, April Mayes, and Solsiree del Moral

Series Description:

More than any other region of the Americas, the Caribbean has been continuously defined by the push and pull between global white supremacy and Black liberation, colonial and anticolonial impulses, and the struggle for freedom against externally imposed economies and political systems. This series proposes to focus on these varied and contradictory histories of the region with a particular focus on Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and their transnational ties. Importantly, books will explore the Caribbean as a racialized space and will not be afraid to name the ways whiteness and Blackness work in the region. We are dedicated to publishing projects based on fieldwork in Caribbean libraries, archives, homes, and streets that reflect local “Caribbean from within” experiences and viewpoints. Thus, books about Caribbean history, broadly defined, which may include some literature and anthropology, are welcome.
