Review quote

Ian Yeboah provides an intimate and first-hand account of a group of recent African immigrants living in this Midwestern American city. Drawing on his knowledge about this community, he presents the reader with a rich and insightful view of the experiences of these Ghanaians as they adjust to American life. The book further explores important topics such as changing gender relations among the immigrants, their settlement patterns and social capital development, and the ties that bind them to their country of origin. Black African Neo-Diaspora is a significant contribution to the scholarship on the contemporary African Diaspora. It is a must read for scholars and policy makers interested in diasporan studies, as well as for the recreational reader interested in immigrant America. -- Baffour K. Takyi, University of Akronshow more
