oa Alternation - Introduction

Volume 3, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1023-1757



Focusing on three translocal, transformative forms, candombl, quilombismo or marronage and a sense of journeying to other worlds ('migratory subjectivity'), Carole Boyce Davies traces both the transformative and resistant in Afro-diasporic culture. She articulates the interface between these forms and Western notions of Enlightenment global culture (determined by capitalism) as well as African diasporic notions. As alternative global movement, Afro-diasporic culture's globalisation came from forced migration and the politics of liberation, functions therapeutically reconstructively and promotes human happiness individually and collectively.
