    The Black Social Economy in the Americas
  • This pioneering book explores the meaning of the term “Black Social Economy,” a self-help sector that remains autonomous from the state and business sectors.
  • With the Western Hemisphere’s ignoble history of enslavement and violence towards African peoples, and the strong anti-black racism that still pervades society, the African diaspora in the Americas has turned to alternative practices of socio-economic organization. Conscientious and collective organizing is thus a means of creating meaningful livelihoods.
  • In this volume, fourteen scholars explore the concept of the “Black Social Economy,” bringing together innovative research on the lived experience of Afro-descendants in business and society in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, and the United States.
