Included in the journal's special issue: The Plenaries: Conference on Caribbean Culture in Honour of Professor Rex Nettleford, Mona, Kingston, Jamaica (03/1996), edited by Barry Chevannes and George Lamming; 103 pp., Discusses Ethiopianism and Pan-Africanism as philosophies based on the premise that the alliances of the blacks of Africa and the diaspora are not limited by borders. These philosophies, both grounded in Atlantic crossings, are arguably part of the process of completing emancipation through their creation of a new discursive space for blacks, what Brodber terms "Blackspace." --Kezia Page, Transnational negotiations (2011, p. 68)
