Allara publishes a review of Africa in Florida

Pamela Allara publishes a review of Africa in Florida! In Coming to Light: The Spiritual and Material Legacies of African Cultures in Florida (H-AfrArts, July 2014), she writes.... 

What initially appeared to me (as someone from the Northeast) as a rather marginal topic reveals itself instead to be so rich... of the pleasures of this book--and what would make it an ideal supplementary text for a graduate seminar--is the discovery of illuminating narratives...
In order to map this complex mental and physical space, the editors cast a wide net that includes theorists, historians, anthropologists, poets, and artists, resulting in differing approaches that deliberately avoid coherence or closure.

Read the entire review, see H-Net Review.
