Stephen Small, professor of African American Studies at UC Berkeley, introduces his recently published book, 20 Questions and Answers on Black Europe (Amrit Publishers, The Hague, Netherlands, 2018).
Europe is made up of at least 46 nations, and a population of more than 770 million people. Black people of African descent are estimated at more than 7 million, with at least 90% of them in just 12 nations. Stephen Small offers an in-depth analysis of what exactly is Black Europe, and what are the experiences of Black people in Europe. He defines Black Europe and addresses questions about gender and demography; about history and the legacies of slavery, colonialism and imperialism; the politics of racism, political representation and community politics; economics, the legal system, the psychological dimensions of Black people in Europe, faith communities and musical production; knowledge production, Black peoples’ relations with other people of color in Europe, the African Diaspora and the challenges and priorities for the future.
