Diaspora is the scattering of a population throughout the world. It also refers to the name given to that community, thus emphasizing its unity across borders. It is this experience of uprootedness that is reflected in the work of Kudzanai-Violet Hwami, whose paintings bear witness to her experience of migration. Jay Ramier observes the intersection of black diasporas through music, which he sees as “a unique vector in terms of spirituality, but also of social, philosophical and political discourse”. For Nolan Oswald Dennis, diaspora embodies a call to live “elsewhere,” even if that elsewhere is perhaps also here. In this way, we become estranged from our own environment and more aware of the world around us by experiencing a form of inner exile.
