Abstract

Migration and diaspora studies are becoming more and more important with the increased movement of people across national borders and even continents. Being entangled with slavery and the slave trade, African diaspora studies have caught the attention of those outside academia also. Diasporists themselves are researching their ancestral histories and the rationale behind dispersals from their homelands, which has a momentum of its own.
