Notes:
"On the basis of Bastide's Les Amériques noires, this book review dwells on the memory of slavery and of African origins among black people in the New World. It focuses on the everyday as well as literary identity constructs presented in two recent books about Afro-Colombians and Creoles in Martinique." (author)
