Documenting the Diaspora: Historian Couple Investigate Central Africa's Place in World History, Rooting Black Studies in an International Context
Roach, Ronald
Black Issues in Higher Education, v21 n19 p25 Nov 2004
At a time when Black studies programs at American colleges and universities are placing increasing emphasis on the impact of Black migrations and movements throughout the world, scholars such as Drs. John Thornton and Linda Heywood, husband and wife historians, are gaining prominence in the discipline due to the shilling focus. Scholars like this couple, who are now reshaping Black studies along international dimensions, often bring to their specialties fluency in two or more languages; backgrounds in European, Latin American, African or Asian studies; and an interest in examining the wide diversity of the Black experience both in and outside Africa.
