This book is an outgrowth of paper presentations during the New York African Studies Association (NYASA) Conference, which was hosted by the African American Studies program at the State University of New York at Cortland, New York in April 2000. Many excellent papers were presented at the conference around the theme of Africa and the African Diaspora in the New Millenium, hence the title of the book: Issues in Africa and the African Diaspora in the 21st Century. Many colleges are expanding their undergraduate and graduate programs to include: 1) Africana studies and afrology, 2) an international dimension with a focus on regions and groups outside the United States and subordinate cultures within the United States of America, and 3) the effects of the “new” globalization on Africa and the African Diaspora. There is, nonetheless, a dire need for reading materials catering to these expanded scholarly and curriculum goals. This volume is presented as part of the living legacy of the NYASA/SUNY Cortland Conference of April 2000, as well as reading the material for the stated goals above.
