Description - Scattered Belongings by Jayne O. Ifekwunigwe

When the American golfer Tiger Woods proclaimed himself a 'Caublinasian', affiming his mixed caucasian, Black, Native American and Asian ancestry, a storm of controversy was created in a world still perceived in terms of 'black' and 'white'. This book is about ordinary lives similarly faced by the dilemmas of belonging and not belonging and about how the often painful experience of being a stranger in two cultures can be named and celebrated. The first section tells the poignant narratives of six women of mixed African/ African Caribbean and white European heritage. In the second Jayne Ifekwunigwe explores the cultural and historical roots of the popular discourses of 'race' and analyses the problem of theorising mixed racial and/or cultural identity in a global context with the lived experience of these women always in mind.
