Summary More than a million and a half Africans were brought to the Caribbean between the 15th and 19th centuries. Today, their descendants are active in literature and the arts, producing literature with strong and direct ties to traditional African expressions. At completion Caribbean Literature will contain 100,000 pages of text with associated images. Writers share tales of survival, exile, resistance,endurance, and emigration in their native dialects making it a vital resource for those seeking to hear and understand the often ignored voices of the Black Diaspora.
