Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: This qualitative, non-experimental study seeks to explore and understand the perceptions of Gambian immigrants in the Atlanta area with respect to African Americans who claim an African or Pan-African identity. The study is mainly concerned with how participants perceive: 1) those African Americans (the people themselves) who claim a Pan/African identity, 2) the actual act of African Americans choosing to claim a Pan/African identity, and 3) African Americans’ expression/demonstration of a Pan/African identity/culture. The study will utilize 3-4 focus group sessions with a sample of 18-36 first and second-generation Gambian immigrants residing in the Atlanta area. Focus group audio transcripts will be analyzed and coded by identifying themes and patterns relevant to the research question.

Abstract: During the early twentieth century, Duse Mohammed Ali launched the African Times and Orient Review. It was a monthly journal published in London, England from 1912 to 1918. The newspaper played a significant role in helping to transmit news throughout the Afro-Asian community. The intent of this paper is to show the importance of the newspaper in the African Diaspora and Pan-African movement. There are frequent references to the newspaper in many books and articles, but there has not been a full length study of the newspaper. One historian, Ian Duffield, did an in depth study of the Duse Mohammed's life and business ventures. Duffield's work provides important biographical information on Duse Mohammed, but very little on the substance of the newspaper. This paper will focus on the contents of the African Times and Orient Review. The paper will take the following approach: It will begin with a brief review of the editor's background and the purpose of the newspaper. It will be followed with an overview of articles and advertisements in the newspaper, its readership, and the identity of contributors. It will conclude with how the newspaper was accessed and how it attempted to shape decolonization and the Pan-African movement.

Abstract: This paper investigates the development of ethnic identity among different Black ethnic groups in the United States. The three different Black ethnic groups that will be investigated are: 1) African immigrants, 2) African-Americans, and 3) Diasporic African immigrants (Caribbean, Afro-Brazilian, etc.). These groups broadly encompass the bulk of the range of people of African ancestry in the United States amalgamated under the term Black. This project seeks to explore the impacts of immigration status, discrimination and inter-group relations (between different Black ethnic groups) on the ways that members of different Black ethnic groups form their ethnic identities.

Abstract: African Art, African Dance and African American Studies: A Collaborative Work
This presentation links the teaching, scholarship and artistic production activities of the author, an assistant professor of Studio Art and instructor of African & African American Studies at a large university in the Midwest. It focuses on the process, production and performance of a collaborative work with an African American instructor of Modern Dance at the same university. The author functioned as scenic and stage designer for a dance production featuring African American modern dance majors in a contemporary piece illustrating indigenous African cultural themes of transformation and the power of dance. The artwork for the dancers’ visual presentation integrated knowledge and research of African body painting, with reference to African tribal heritage. The large sculptures built for the stage referenced the rocky landscape of the Mandara mountains region in northern Cameroon- Nigeria border. Individual portraits of the dancers with body paint, projected above the stage throughout the performance, are built around the knowledge of African body ornamentation. This presentation also includes viewing of a short video clip of the dance performance and of still shots of the dancers’ portraits and stage set.
