This is the first history ever written of the African diaspora in Latin America from emancipation to the present. Covering the last two hundred years, and including Spanish America, Brazil, and the Caribbean, it examines how African-descended people made their way out of slavery and into freedom, and how, once free, they helped build social and political democracy in the region.
