Human Rights, Race, and Resistance in Africa and the African Diaspora (Hardcover)
About this item
Africans and those in the African diaspora have long histories of facing human rights abuses. All too often, race and racism coincide with these various instances of injustice, ranging from colonial abuses to their contemporary offshoots. Academics have thoroughly discussed such notorious examples as those of South African apartheid or the Rwandan genocide. However, new scholarship explores emerging trends in discrimination, with special emphasis on gendered rights and the rights of vulnerable and minority populations in the African diaspora. This volume addresses these emerging themes as they relate to race and methods of resistance.
