The presence of [email protected] in the United States (and throughout the Americas) belies the notion that Blacks and [email protected] are two distinct categories or cultures.

[email protected] are uniquely situated to bridge the widening social divide between [email protected] and African Americans- at the same time, their experiences reveal pervasive racism among [email protected] and ethnocentrism among African Americans. Offering insight into [email protected] life and new ways to understand culture, ethnicity, nation, identity, and antiracist politics, The [email protected] Reader presents a kaleidoscopic view of Black [email protected] in the United States. It addresses history, music, gender, class, and media representations in more than sixty selections, including scholarly essays, memoirs, newspaper and magazine articles, poetry, short stories, and interviews.While the selections cover centuries of [email protected] history, since the arrival of Spanish-speaking Africans in North America in the mid-sixteenth-century, most of them focus on the past fifty years.

The central question of how [email protected] relate to and experience U.S. and Latin American racial ideologies is engaged throughout, in first-person accounts of growing up [email protected], a classic essay by a leader of the Young Lords, and analyses of U.S. census data on race and ethnicity, as well as in pieces on gender and sexuality, major-league baseball, and religion.

The contributions that [email protected] have made to U.S. culture are highlighted in essays on the illustrious Afro-Puerto Rican bibliophile Arturo Alfonso Schomburg and music and dance genres from salsa to mambo, and from boogaloo to hip hop. Taken together, these and many more selections help to bring [email protected] in the United States into critical view.Contributors: Afro–Puerto Rican Testimonies Project, Josefina Baéz, Ejima Baker, Luis Barrios, Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Adrian Burgos Jr., Ginetta E.
