This is an exciting and imaginative volume, as Sheila Walker has succeeded in stimulating an insightful and provocative conversation among scholars and cultural leaders from all over the African Diaspora, uniquely informed by both recent research as well as lived experience. Topics both historical and contemporary, from Burial Ground to Carnival, are often explored through the lens of multidisciplinarity, bringing the African Diaspora into much sharper focus. A splendid and much-needed contribution. -- Michael A. Gomez, New York University
