Academic Revolution: Black Studies

  • Jerome TeelucksinghEmail author


This is an examination of the evolution and development of Black Studies in the USA. Furthermore, global and transnational forces have shaped Black Studies in the Anglophone Caribbean in the post-1970 decades. The globalization of racial ideas constitute a significant component of the transatlantic epistemology which has been evolving at the campuses in the Caribbean and the USA and the public sphere in the second half of the twentieth century. The evolution of Black Studies in the former British West Indian colonies is unique as it underwent a cross-fertilization from Britain and the USA. The Caribbean diaspora who were trained at the USA and British universities exerted considerable influence in shaping Black Studies in the Caribbean.
