9780313314438: Notable Caribbeans and Caribbean Americans: A Biographical Dictionary

This is the first major biographical dictionary devoted exclusively to celebrating Caribbeans and Caribbean Americans who have made significant contributions to their society and beyond. More than 160 profiles feature historical and contemporary figures from every Caribbean island, the United States, and even England and Canada, and from a diverse range of fields such as acting, sports, political activism, and more. Selection criteria included the notable demonstration of a Caribbean ethos or style, combined with a lasting and novel impact. Individual narrative entries discuss family background, education, challenges, and achievements.

The breadth of coverage in Notable Caribbeans and Caribbean Americans will enlighten and inspire students and general readers alike. Many lesser known role models, such as labor activist and educator Antonia Pantoja and political philosopher Frantz Fanon, are presented along with engaging portraits of better known personalities like reggae superstar Bob Marley and baseball great Sammy Sosa. Bibliographical sources for further research complement each entry. A wide selection of photographs accompanies the text.
