This essay moves between the author’s autobiographical reflections and a close reading of Maureen Warner-Lewis’s Guinea’s Other Suns (1991/2015) in order to unpack the ways Warner-Lewis’s research on Africa in the Caribbean has challenged the split between them around questions of ethnicity and racialization. It further attends to the significance of this work on and in Trinidad, given the refusal of Africanness at the time the book first appeared.
