New e-book in Portuguese


Based on my PhD thesis, this book is a reflection on the lives and posthumous reputations of two Black intellectuals - Booker T. Washington and Manuel R. Querino. In it, I seek to find connections between their experiences of and responses to racism and "bridge the Black Atlantic" by showing how Manuel Querino may have come to know of and admire Washington - the only African American he mentions in his works. Now available in Portuguese on Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords (Kobo) as well as the website of Livraria Cultura
