Introduction: Africa and the African Diaspora

This guide includes easy readers/ picture books about peoples and cultures in Africa and the African Diaspora, a term commonly used to describe the mass dispersion of peoples from Africa during the Transatlantic Slave Trades (1500s to the 1800s). This diaspora took millions of people from Western and Central Africa to different regions throughout the Americas and the Caribbean.
