University Press of Florida

Raj Chetty demonstrates that in the period following General Rafael Trujillo's assassination in 1961, literary and cultural journals published works that evidenced engagement with an African diaspora worldview decades before the massive wave of migration from the Dominican Republic to the United States. These works of twentieth-century Dominican literature engage with ideas of Dominican blackness and Dominican negritude against the backdrop of the Dominican Civil War.

Keywords:   Dominican Republic, Twentieth-century Dominican literature, Dominican Civil War, Dominican blackness, Dominican negritude, African diaspora
