British Caribbeans created radical new ways of thinking about themselves, their communities, and their rights. The popular cultures of black internationalism that emerged from debates on race and racism include Garveyism, Rastafarianism, and “regge” dances to the irresistible rhythms that made the 1920s and the 1930s the Age of Jazz. This book focuses on black internationalisms that flourished in print and popular culture in the interwar Greater Caribbean during the 1910s to 1930s. It describes the characteristics of the circum-Caribbean migratory sphere, and argues that the making and unmaking of this migratory sphere over the first four decades of the twentieth century was key to the emergence of globally influential black internationalisms, and to the course of British Caribbean decolonization.
