This chapter provides a regional and comparative analysis of Black Power in the Caribbean context. It first assesses what “blackness” meant within Caribbean conceptions of Black Power and the extent to which it could incorporate the region's many ethnic groups. It then assesses the ideological content of Caribbean Black Power through an analysis of its political, economic and cultural dimensions. Lastly, it addresses the relationship with the North American movement as a means of highlighting both the local specificities of the Caribbean movement and its transnational dynamics. The chapter concludes by reflecting on the mixed legacies of Caribbean Black Power, suggesting that its contribution to theorizing the dynamics of both race and class in the region needs to be revalorized.

Keywords:   Caribbean Black Power, Relationship with North American movement, Race and Class, Legacies
