This chapter introduces the broad contours of the circum-Caribbean migratory sphere from the mid-nineteenth century to the early 1920s. It discusses patterns and shifts of migratory movements, pointing to places where British Caribbeans went, where they hailed from and where they were headed next. It describes what kinds of labor relations migrants encountered and what considerations shaped states' actions toward migrants in this era. The chapter also discusses the emergence of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), a product of the migratory sphere.

Keywords:   circum-Caribbean, migratory sphere, labor relations, UNIA
