Observations of Voyages Real and Imagined
This chapter examines the diverse subjectivities of the diasporic experience, in the final metaphor of a difficult voyage. The established groups (European) are quick to exclude the newcomers (African) because of what they do and don’t represent—the troubles carried over from their homeland, as well their lack of a shared history and heritage with the established majority. And it is these suspicions of cross-border activity have encouraged the creation of nation and population. Despite such discrimination, however, the African diaspora has pierced through the traditional social boundaries, creatively assimilating themselves into their new home as equals.
