Editorial Reviews


“A significant contribution to the growing scholarship of diasporic studies and multiracial coalitions. Anybody interested in the overlapping histories of antiracist and anticolonial movements should read this book.”―American Historical Review “A wonderfully balanced account of points of overlap between African American journalists and Puerto Rican activists from 1940 to 1972. The book brings to light connections that have been neglected on both sides of these two fields of cultural studies.”―The Americas “Reimagines the way race is approached in Puerto Rico and the black diaspora. . . . Insightful, nuanced, and delightfully written.”―Choice “Establishes a groundbreaking standard for understanding the issues of race, class, gender, and interracial/interethnic coalitions, exemplified as alternative means of fighting against colonialism while articulating a more inclusive national identity narrative. This book is a valuable source for any course on American, Caribbean, Latino, Latin American, and women and gender studies, as well as other related fields.”―Latino Studies “This timely work highlights how activists and politicians in both spaces understood race, empire, and colonialism in the 20th century. . . . A must-read for scholars of transnational and diaspora history as well as anyone trying to build black and brown alliances in today’s antiracist movements.”―African American Intellectual History Society
