Living While Black In Latin America And The Caribbean



This book aims to highlight, how and why people of Afro-descendant living in Latin American and Caribbean, continue to experience greater levels of violent racial discrimination, than their African-American counterparts. Contributing scholars provides a range of perspectives which illuminate and explore the experiences of Afro-descendant people and their responses to institutional racism and state violence.

This volume is organized categories by region and countries, followed by a range of established and ground-breaking perspectives regarding the experiences of the Afro-descendant population in Latin America and the Caribbean. This collection brings together a comparative set of scholarly contributions, which theorize how patterns of past and post recognition racism is experienced by Afro-descendent people through the process of race reformulation, which often takes place after neoliberal states claim to recognize indigenous and Afro-descendant peoples and their rights.

Conclusively, the scholarly and journalistic and state reaction to the death of George Floyd confirms that Latin America is entering a news stage of racial recalcitrance, which exposes the dangers of post-recognition racism in an era of racist resistance to Black protest and Afro-Descendant protests and progress.
