Diaspora through Tourist Eyes

Issue: 

This essay examines the ramifications for Diasporic relations of US African Americans’ investment in tourism as a means of supporting Haiti’s sovereignty and economy. It analyzes the deployment of touristic tropes in prominent US African American writing about Haiti during the US Occupation, primarily James Weldon Johnson’s 1920 condemnation of the Occupation in the Nation and the Crisis, and two works of children’s literature, Arna Bontemps and Langston Hughes’ Popo and Fifina (1931) and Mary and John Jaspers’ Henry and Henrietta: the Shield Alley Twins (1933-1934).
