Black Jews in Africa and the Americas

Black Jews in Africa and the Americas

Harvard University Press | February 4, 2013 | 239 pages

Tudor explains how many African peoples came to think of themselves as descendants of the ancient tribes of Israel. Pursuing medieval and modern race narratives over a millennium in which Jews were cast as black and black Africans were cast as Jews, he reveals a complex interaction between religious and racial labels and their political uses.
