Additional Details:

In the social world of new African immigrants to the United States, the term “American-African” has emerged not only to distinguish these new immigrants from African-Americans but to signal an entire new ethnicity, culture and politics that can no longer be contained or described as simply “black.” This class engages fictions that straddle the African-American/American African divide as well as juggling those more familiar tensions of American/Immigrant and Black/White.
