Summary
  • "The West Indian Americans captures the experiences of this diverse group of immigrants who have arrived in the United States since 1965. These English-speaking Caribbean immigrants have an increasing presence in this country, particularly in New York City. The differences between the various peoples of African, East Indian, or mixed ancestry, usually unacknowledged, are described here. Henke clearly relates who the groups are - from the Jamaicans to the Garifuna - why they left their homelands, how they have adapted and impacted this country, and the new challenges they face. Many notable West Indian Americans are profiled."--Jacket
