This book argues that the black-internationalist and anticolonial movements that would shake the twentieth century were rooted in the experiences of ordinary men and women of the tropical circum-Caribbean. It shows how Caribbean creations played a role at the roots of “ U.S.” jazz and radical activism, and that Afro-American creations played a role in the birth of “regge” dance and decolonization. In this conclusion, the emergence of interwar black internationalism, patterns of world migration, and popular culture in the making of the African diaspora are reviewed.
