Navigating the African Diaspora: The Anthropology of Invisibility by Donald Carter (University of Minnesota Press, 2010).
Carter examines invisibility in its various forms, from social rejection and residential segregation to war memorials and the inability of some groups to represent themselves through popular culture, scholarship, or art. "Carter urges us to think about diasporic journeys and sojourns not as temporary conditions but as ‘states of being’ for many of the world’s peoples." — Charles Carnegie, author of Postnationalism Prefigured: Caribbean Borderlands
