Abstract: The Caribbean region, geographically and linguistically diverse, is culturally linked and defined as a site of constant migration and movement of commercial goods. Thus, food consumption and distinctive Caribbean cuisines are the result of a process of colonialism, hybridization and creolization, carries out a cultural function, acts as a national and regional identity marker, has historically served as the basis for the regional economy, and may be viewed through three distinct perspectives - traditional, contemporary, and transnational; all of which are influenced by geopolitics. Globalization, urbanization, and the resultant change in consumer attitudes and consumption patterns, have greatly impacted health outcomes in the region.

These multiplicative factors – the cultural, social, economic, and political – act as determinants of health, which have helped to create the current epidemic of non-communicable dietary-related diseases, such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension, among people of African descent in the Caribbean region.

Therefore strategies to mitigate this escalating epidemic must not be short-sighted, and must instead involve a multi-prong approach, which includes health education and behavioral intervention, but also changes in domestic and international policy, in order to bring about needed social changes.

Abstract: Objectives: Perceived discrimination is a strong predictor of poor physical and mental health among Black Americans. Despite growing heterogeneity due to increasing in-migration, very few studies have examined ethnic and nativity status differences in perceived discriminations among subsets of the Black population.

Methods: We examined perceived everyday discrimination using secondary data from the 2001-2003 National Survey of American Life, which included analytic subsamples of 3,368 U.S.-born African Americans, 368 U.S.-born Black Caribbeans, and 1,077 foreign-born Black Caribbeans.

Results: Foreign-born Black Caribbeans reported lower levels of everyday discrimination than U.S.-born Black Caribbeans although there was no significant difference in everyday racial discrimination between U.S.-born African Americans and U.S.-born Black Caribbeans. None of the socioeconomic measures (educational attainment, household income, and employment status) were associated with perceived everyday discrimination. Subgroup analyses of Black Caribbeans found that the initial advantage exhibited by foreign-born Black Caribbeans was wholly attributed to their shorter length of stay in the United States relative to U.S.-born Black Caribbeans.

Conclusions: Exposure to the racialized context of the United States appears to account for U.S.-born Black Caribbeans’ higher levels of perceived discrimination relative to their foreign-born counterparts. Future research should both seek to identify effective coping mechanisms among foreign-born Black Caribbeans to help mitigate the health effects of racial discrimination and continue to disaggregate the Black racial category given its heterogeneous nature.

"The Role the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Plays within CARICOM and in the Caribbean's Relationship with the World Economy" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Theory vs. Policy?

Abstract: The role of Caribbean trade agreements has often been neglected in most studies about Western Hemisphere economic integration. This paper examines the paradoxical role that the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) has played in forging political and economic integration among the mini-states of the Eastern Caribbean, while at the same time impeding deeper economic integration within CARICOM and slowing progress towards the Caribbean's full integration with the global economy.

4. Carey, A'Keitha. "“CaribFunk Technique: Afro-Caribbean Feminism, Caribbean Dance and Popular Culture”" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 36th Annual National Council for Black Studies, Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2019-07-22 <>
Publication Type: Panelist Abstract
Abstract: CaribFunk technique, by definition, is a 21st century mutation of foundational dance, fitness, and somatic paradigms. CaribFunk explores the power of the hip wine, female strength, liberation, sensuality and virtuosic ability. I attempt to redefine Black femininity by establishing the relationship between the technique and Caribbean popular culture, and addressing why it is important to Black women in academia. This includes, establishing the Black Caribbean female body and its translation, surveying Caribbean popular culture in pedagogical practice and reinforcing the marriage between Caribbean dance, sensuality, strength and eroticism.
