Hidden Commonalities describes the many cultural groups within the black race. The group consists of Africans and descendants of enslaved Africans, who were brought to the Americas such as North and South America, the Caribbean, and other parts of the world due to chattel slavery. This book explains how these groups are connected because of a history of oppression. Hidden Commonalities explores the conflicts that have emerged among these groups because of different historical experiences and environments. This book attempts to create black solidarity by sharing our commonalities through cuisine, music and dance. Hidden Commonalities attempts to erase stereotypes that Africans and Africans of the diaspora hold against each other and empower them by celebrating their rich history and contributions worldwide.
