“Peripheral Inclusion: Communal Belonging In Suriname’S Sephardic Community”, Aviva Ben-Ur Dec 2006

“Peripheral Inclusion: Communal Belonging In Suriname’S Sephardic Community”, Aviva Ben-Ur

Aviva Ben-Ur

This article compares the membership status of Eurafricans in the Portuguese Jewish communities of Curaçao and Suriname. In the former colony, free people of African origin were almost entirely barred from admission, whereas in Suriname manumitted Africans and their descendants were included as members, albeit sidelined to the margins, a phenomenon I term "peripheral inclusion."

Prosodic Rhythm And African American English, Erik R. Thomas, Phillip M. Carter Dec 2005

Prosodic Rhythm And African American English, Erik R. Thomas, Phillip M. Carter

Phillip M. Carter

Prosodic rhythm was measured for a sample of 20 African American and 20 European American speakers from North Carolina using the metric devised by Low, Grabe, and Nolan (2000), which involves comparisons of the durations of vowels in adjacent syllables. In order to gain historical perspective, the same technique was applied to the ex-slave recordings described in Bailey, Maynor, and Cukor-Avila (1991) and to recordings of five Southern European Americans born before the Civil War. In addition, Jamaicans, Hispanics of Mexican origin who spoke English as their L2, and Hispanics speaking Spanish served as control groups. Results showed that the ...

A Turbulent Decade: Social Protest Movements And The Labour Movement, 1965-1975, Rowan Cahill, Beverley Symons

The future was seeded with movements and ideas that changed Australian society and culture, and enlarged the space for democratic action. This book, edited by Beverley Symons and Rowan Cahill, themselves activists during the period, brings together the candid, at times vulnerable, recollections of thirty-nine participants in the events of the decade.

Female And Male Student Athletes' Perceptions Of Career Transition In Sport And Higher Education: A Visual Elicitation And Qualitative Assessment, C. Keith Harrison

Dr. C. Keith Harrison

One-hundred-andforty- three (n = 143) National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II student athletes were administered the Life After Sports Scale (LASS) designed by the authors. The LASS is a 58-item mixed method inventory.

Rara! Vodou, Power And Performance In Haiti And Its Diaspora, Elizabeth Mcalister Dec 2001

Rara! Vodou, Power And Performance In Haiti And Its Diaspora, Elizabeth Mcalister

Elizabeth McAlister

Rara is a vibrant annual street festival in Haiti, when followers of the Afro-Creole religion called Vodou march loudly into public space to take an active role in politics. Working deftly with highly original ethnographic material, Elizabeth McAlister shows how Rara bands harness the power of Vodou spirits and the recently dead to broadcast coded points of view with historical, gendered, and transnational dimensions.

Asafa Jalata

Abstract

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Introduction Just as European and African slave traders merchandised Africans and created the old African diaspora, successive colonial and authoritarian regimes2 of Ethiopia forced some Oromos out of their homeland, Oromia, and caused them to settle in the West. The displaced Oromo entered the United States as one of the "new" African diaspora groups four centuries after the old African diaspora began to be created. In the process, the Oromo diaspora emerged on the world stage. Whereas the old African diaspora lived under racial slavery and ...

As Long As You Think You're White..., Shawna Hanel Nov 2001

As Long As You Think You're White..., Shawna Hanel

Shawna Hanel

This body of work encourages white people to recognize that their histories, perspectives, and experiences are not those of humanity, but rather those of white humanity; while simultaneously exposing the falsity of inherent whiteness. In other words, the exhibit and web site provide a space for white people to perceive their whiteness in the contexts of socialization, material culture, and economic location; and then to begin to disavow it within their attitudes, behaviors, and identities. Recognizing and disavowing whiteness concurrently may appear contradictory. Both are strategies necessary for the creation of white identities capable of acknowledging the gross historical injustices ...

Buffalo's "Prophet Of Protest": The Political Leadership And Activism Of Reverend Dr. Bennett W. Smith, Sr., Sherri Wallace

Sherri L. Wallace

Smith, Sr.] Sr.'s own electoral and political activism clearly emanate from the ethical expressions of the social justice ministry of his late friend and comrade, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. King characterized social justice in terms of "comprehensive social empowerment." He believed that freedom for African-Americans without empowerment (i.e. "Civil Rights"), land and/or other social/economic resources, was not "true" freedom (Walker 1991, 24). King's philosophy, similar to Stokely Carmichael's ...
