What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The single most sophisticated treatment I have ever read of the encounter and relationship between African Americans and Afro-Brazilians, this exceedingly fine and elegantly written book makes an original and exciting contribution to scholarship on the African diaspora. Pinho brings enormous insight to understanding the mutual perceptions of African Americans and Afro-Brazilians as both engage in a subtly patterned waltz of mutual recognition and nonrecognition."—John S. Burdick, Syracuse University



Exploring how and why Brazil has become the most significant country outside of Africa for African American heritage tourists, Pinho makes a valuable theoretical contribution to African diaspora studies. Tourists seeking 'a shortcut to Africanness' reveal that interpersonal connections and cultural exchange within the African diaspora are as important as the teleological return to Africa."—Christopher Dunn, Tulane University
