This book focuses on seven of the prominent figures that both in action and in ideology reshaped nationalism, anti-colonialism, imperialism, and the construction of an Afro-Caribbean identity. Through a connective analysis of the activists and intellectuals, Ideology, Politics, and Radicalism of the Afro-Caribbean illustrates how the improvement of the working classes in the Caribbean spread across the world and was impacted by a transnational exchange of ideas and resources. The ideologies which were introduced by these leaders are noted as not being limited to one specific country, but rather part of a larger cultural movement in Pan-Africanism.
