“The Yoruba Diaspora in the Atlantic World” edited by Toyin Falola and Matt D. Childs

Tbook5here is no doubt that the Yoruba ethnic group of Nigeria is one of the largest ancestral groups for people of African descent in the Diaspora.  If you are interested in learning about how broad the Yoruba Diaspora is, then this will be a great read.  It covers various aspects of the Yoruba Diaspora experience in places like Brazil, Cuba, Costa Rica, Trinidad, Bahamas, Haiti, and North America.  It also delves into voyages back to Africa with such groups as the Krios of Sierra Leone.  It is a remarkable read with Toyin Falola, one of the most distinguished Nigerian Historians and current Professor at the University of Texas as one of its editors.
