La nuova diaspora africana negli Stati Uniti: blackness, letteratura e transnazionalità

This essay provides an overview of the literary works produced by writers belonging to the so-called “new African Diaspora”, that is, people who have voluntarily moved from Africa to the United States in the last two decades. Specifically, it outlines how works by Teju Cole, Chris Abani, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Dinaw Mengestu and NoViolet Bulawayo dialogue and clash with certain themes of the African American tradition, by sharing a political engagement with American blackness yet also distancing themselves from it because of their different ontological understanding of race.
