On the Shoulders of Giants Vol: 2 Central America (Paper Back)
On the Shoulders of Giants Vol: 2 Central America is available now. The African diaspora expands across the globe covering all inhabitable lands of this great planet we live upon. The continent of Central America is no exception; because of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade descendants of many of the African nations now occupy the lands of Central America. On the Shoulders of Giants Vol: 2 Central America highlights nine heroes from Central American history and introduces our readers to the Garifuna people and their culture. Much of the history of Central America is unknown to those outside of the Continent and man of those who live on the continent. In digestible terminology, the “African” Chronology of Central America is a history that is almost nonexistent in the minds of African people distributed throughout the world. The African and indigenous history of Central America is mostly untold, due to in large part to the ever present system of global white supremacy.
My goal with this volume is to inform, and help spark an interest in researching the history of the African and indigenous presence of Central America. The Countries of Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama make up Central America. The nine individuals profiled in “On the Shoulders of Giants Vol: 2 Central America” have contributed to their perspective countries through revolution, music, literature, politics, art and more. The story of the Garifuna is a fascinating story that displays the ability of African people to survive hardship and create a culture that would influence the world. This volume also delves into Central America’s forgoing history and past uncovers stories of hidden figures who have literally changed the course of history.
