520    "At the close of the Second World War, waves of African 
       American musicians migrated to Paris, eager to thrive in 
       its reinvigorated jazz scene. Jazz Diasporas challenges 
       the notion that Paris was a color-blind paradise for 
       African Americans. On the contrary, musicians--and African
       American artists based in Europe like writer and social 
       critic James Baldwin--adopted a variety of strategies to 
       cope with the cultural and social assumptions that greeted
       them throughout their careers in Paris, particularly in 
       light of the cultural struggles over race and identity 
       that gripped France as colonial conflicts like the 
       Algerian War escalated. Through case studies of prominent 
       musicians and thoughtful analysis of personal interviews, 
       music, film, and literature, Rashida K. Braggs 
       investigates the impact of this post-war musical 
       migration. Examining a number of players in the jazz scene,
       including Sidney Bechet, Inez Cavanaugh, and Kenny Clarke,
       Braggs identifies how they performed both as musicians and
       as African Americans. The collaborations that they and 
       other African Americans created with French musicians and 
       critics complicated racial and cultural understandings of 
       who could play and represent "authentic" jazz. Their role 
       in French society challenged their American identity and 
       illusions of France as a racial safe haven. In this post-
       war era of collapsing nations and empires, African 
       American jazz players and their French counterparts 
       destabilized set notions of identity. Sliding in and out 
       of black and white and American and French identities, 
       they created collaborative spaces for mobile and mobilized
       musical identities, what Braggs terms 'jazz diasporas.'"--
