Black and Green Atlantic Cross-currents of the African and Irish Diasporas by Peter D. O'Neill

For centuries, African and Irish people have traversed the Atlantic, as slaves, servants, migrants, exiles, political organizers and cultural workers. Their experiences intersected; their cultures influenced one another. These essays explore the connections that have defined the 'Black and Green Atlantic' in culture, politics, race and labour.


'The essays here complicate the received wisdoms about black/Irish relations in a series of case studies that add greatly to our knowledge of this fractured relationship.' - Alan Rice, Journal of Transatlantic Studies 'The essays provide excellent points for further investigations into the subtle nuances and histories that shape our understanding of people and ideas.' - Roxana Oltean, European Journal of American Studies 'The Black and Green Atlantic exceeds its fine individual contributions in one important respect: by combining a range of competing approaches, the book as a whole puts their key concepts to the test in ways rarely found in a monograph. In doing so, it will provide an invaluable point for future work in the field.' - Journal of American Studies'
