"The Black Pacific: The African Diaspora in South East Asia" 

The Black Pacific: The African Diaspora in South East Asia makes a theoretical and conceptual shift from the Black Atlantic, which is used to reconstruct, describe, and analyze the experiences of Black diasporic populations, to the Black Pacific: an explanatory model that registers the dispersal and movement of Black people in places rarely accounted for in scholarly analysis of the African diaspora.  Thus, it expands the contours of Black internationalism, racial capitalism, and mobility studies, through the case study of young English Foreign Language (EFL) teachers of African descent who travel East Asia to teach.
