The Afro-Latin@ Experience in Contemporary American Literature and Culture : Engaging Blackness, Hardback Book

The Afro-Latin@ Experience in Contemporary American Literature and Culture : Engaging Blackness Hardback

Part of the Afro-Latin@ Diasporas series

Description

This book examines contemporary Afro-Latin@ literature and its depiction of the multifaceted identity encompassing the separate identifications of Americans and the often-conflicting identities of blacks and Latin@s. The Afro-Latin@ Experience in Contemporary American Literature and Culture highlights the writers' aims to define Afro-Latin@ identity, to rewrite historical narratives so that they include the Afro-Latin@ experience and to depict the search for belonging. Their writing examines the Afro-Latin@ encounter with race within the US and exposes the trauma resulting from the historical violence of colonialism and slavery.
