Legacy of the Crossing

"Legacy of the Crossing: Life, death and triumph among descendants of the world's largest forced migration" edited by Thomas LaVeist, is a key outcome from the International Conference on Health in the African Diaspora (ICHAD) that delves into issues linked to the health status and outcomes among descendants fo the Transatlantic slave trade. Leading scholars and health advocates from Belize, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama, Nicaragua, United States and Venezuela share insights on chronic disease, HIV/AIDS, infant and maternal mortality and the social determinants of health. ABDGN contributed a chapter to this incredible collection of diverse experiences to bring the voices of Black Diaspora and migrant populations into dialogues about the long-term impacts of the Transatlantic slave trade on all our communities.
