Pick out Keywords

Write out your topic, highlight key terms, then use those in our databases. I suggest starting with articles

  • The African Diaspora in Jamaica.
    • (African OR black) AND diaspora AND Jamaica 
  • The Back-to-Africa movement and its impact on Sierra Leone.
    • ("Back-to-Africa" OR "Back to africa") AND "Sierra Leone"
  • Depictions of the African Diaspora in Britain in the 20th century.
    • databases do a poor job with "depictions" or "Causes" or "impact" so use basic keywords
    • ("African diaspora" OR "Black diaspora") AND ("united kingdom" OR britain)
