Perspectives on Race, Ethnicity and Power in Maritime America
Papers from the conference held at Mystic Seaport in September 2000. Edited by Glenn S. Gordinier.
These ten papers by a variety of scholars suggest the myriad ways in which race and ethnicity are bound up and redefined in the context of the sea: From Americans finding an identity in China, ca. 1800, to the Pan-African efforts of Marcus Garvey in the 1920s; from the life course of Philadelphia black sailors in the early 1800s to the coastal mix of races in the 1900s; and from the flow of riverboat jazz to the ways race, ethnicity, and power are conveyed in the arts and public programs.
