What People are Saying About This
“Lorick-Wilmot shows how her respondents filter (gender, sexual, ethnic) identity through specific geographies and distinct front- and back-stage personas that guide how Afro-Caribbeans ‘move through the world.’ Avoiding common assimilationist thinking in the study of immigrants, she melds postcolonial, intersectional, and double consciousness frames as she checks still-resonant assumptions (á la Moynihan and his ilk) of what it means to be black in the USA.” (Vilna Bashi Treitler, PhD, University of California at Santa Barbara, USA)
“Building on the work of W. E. B. Du Bois, Lorick-Wilmot formulates the notion of triple identity consciousness and mounts a compelling critique of the endurance of white supremacy. Among her respondents, she finds a palpable commitment to the advancement of ‘positive human excellence for all’.”(Steven J. Gold, PhD, Michigan State University, USA)
“In the engaging, self-reflexive style of an oral history, Lorick-Wilmot uses undervalued but necessary frameworks of class, post-colonial theory, transnationality, and the diaspora to show that the middle class, second generation Caribbean experience is also the Black American experience.”(Nadia Y. Kim, PhD, Loyola Marymount University, USA)
