    Why have the struggles of the African Diaspora so resonated with South Pacific people? How have Maori, Pasifika and Pakeha activists incorporated the ideologies of the African diaspora into their struggle against colonial rule and racism, and their pursuit of social justice?

    This book challenges predominant understandings of the historical linkages that make up the (post-)colonial world. The author goes beyond both the domination of the Atlantic viewpoint, and the correctives now being offered by South Pacific and Indian Ocean studies, to look at how the Atlantic ecumene is refracted in and has influenced the Pacific ecumene. The book is empirically rich, using extensive interviews, participation and archival work and focusing on the politics of Black Power and the Rastafari faith. It is also theoretically sophisticated, offering an innovative hermeneutical critique of post-colonial and subaltern studies.

    The Black Pacific is essential reading for students and scholars of Politics, International Relations, History and Anthropology interested in anti-colonial struggles, anti-racism and the quests for equality, justice, freedom and self-determination.

    Great book for deconstructing four presidents with stories from the slaves they owned.

    one interesting excerpt talks about how at one point Washington has too many slaves, so he threw a party, gave out tickets and just raffled off dozens of slaves

    Been reading this off and on, very informative and great so far. Essays from Native Americans (although I'm confused now because there appears to be a general consensus on calling themselves American Indians? Not sure what's appropriate)

    After five centuries of Eurocentrism, many people have little idea that Native American tribes still exist, or which traditions belong to what tribes. However over the past decade there has been a rising movement to accurately describe Native cultures and histories. In particular, people have begun to explore the experience of urban Indians鈥攊ndividuals who live in two worlds struggling to preserve traditional Native values within the context of an ever-changing modern society. In Genocide of the Mind, the experience and determination of these people is recorded in a revealing and compelling collection of essays that brings the Native American experience into the twenty-first century. Contributors include: Paula Gunn Allen, Simon Ortiz, Sherman Alexie, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Maurice Kenny, as well as emerging writers from different Indian nations. (less)

    Black Americans being experimented on in the U.S.

    The most popular occurrence of this was the tuskegee syphilis experiment, which they did to see what happens to untreated syphilis. Majority of the men died, many passed it on to their wives & children meanwhile they didn't know they had the disease because they were never told about the experiment.

    Disturbing events beyond that though.

    Holy s*** that is awful
