Coups, Congress and Completing the Haitian Revolution: U.S. African Americans Respond to Aristide's “Exile”
This chapter introduces a critical transnational history of U.S. African Americans and Haitians. The book includes a great thematic range and it carefully examines the political, economic, and cultural relations between U.S. African Americans and Haitians. It illustrates the split of a U.S. American-styled democracy that historically disempowered Africans in the Americas because of intervention and asymmetrical power relations emblematic of U.S.-Haiti relations since the nineteenth century. It expands the frontiers of U.S. African American history and reinforces the popularity of current scholarship that emphasizes U.S. African-American engagements with blacks and Latinos in the international arena and the history of intriguing leaders who were forced to make life-changing decisions for their countries and their race.
