African Diaspora is the term used to describe the mass migration of peoples during the trans-Atlantic slave trade that brought millions of Africans to the New World from the 1500s to the 1800s. The term “African Diaspora” first appeared in the literature in the 1950s. As of today, the African Diaspora is one of the most important in the world in terms of numbers.
Around 340 million Africans are living on the Asiatic continent. There was two waves of migration: African slaves deported to the Indian Ocean World between the 15th and the 19th century and Africans who came to work and invest in Asia in more recent years.
African immigrants came to South America and the Caribbean as a result of the transatlantic slave trade. In Brazil Afro-Latinos accounted for more than 50% of the population. African descendants in the Caribbean account for more than 90% of the population.
The African diaspora community first emerged in Britain in the Roman period. African arrived in greater numbers in 16 century and most of them being victims of the slave trade. In the end of 19 century most Africans came voluntarily as students and workers.
African Americans constitute the third largest ethnic group and the second largest racial group in the United States. African Americans are largely the descendants of enslaved people who were brought from their African homelands.
