What are some of the similarities and differences in practices of self- determination of Africans in the U.S. and their counterparts throughout the hemisphere?
By the late 18th- early19th century, Africans in the United States had significantly adapted their techniques of resistance to the particular contexts of the emerging U.S. nation-state, even as Africans elsewhere in the Western Hemisphere had done the same in their respective countries/colonies. Instances of maroonage, quilombismo, or other attempts to “convene black spaces” in which to self- determine began to follow the racial, class, gender, and cultural particularities of the Europeanizing impulses.
