Abstract:This study examines African American anti-colonial rhetoric during the Great Depression in order better to understand international dimensions of domestic political expression and the complexity of U.S. black American rhetorical culture. I argue that colonial interpretations of the African Diaspora have influenced the expression of black American identity and how black Americans have participated in U.S. democracy. In the early years of the Twentieth Century black Americans confronted racist policies with rhetoric that created new frames for viewing black experience. The pan-African rhetoric of W.E.B. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey employed African spaces as metaphors for reconstituted black identity and created an ontological foundation to bring together disparate African ethnicities through the sharing of a common metaphysical substance. These interpretations of Africa and the international Diaspora served to buttress or recuperate black American existence rather than to articulate a specific political community to contest the specific policies. During the Great Depression the discourse about Africa that had structured appreciations of the Diaspora changed in meaningful ways, and black Americans articulated new, more reciprocal and political relationships to the African Diaspora. The United States' occupation of Haiti, The Liberian Labor Crisis, and the Italian Invasion of Ethiopia created the opportunity for the expression of an anti-colonial, nationalist, Afican Diasporic ethos newspapers, literature, and political pamphlets. This new expression of community configured the scope and style of black American participation in U.S. democracy by suggesting rhetorical strategies for progressive politics and by intervening in the logic of white supremacy with progressive visions of black identity. This project researches the historical context of this transformation, and the contours of its rhetorical legacy.
