Picking Up the Pieces

(p.159) Epilogue Picking Up the Pieces

Gillian Richards-Greaves

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter takes an innovative approach to discussing the process of diasporization and rediasporization as acts of repair and renewal. It provides a life history of the fictional character, Dia, a woman ripped from her native village as a young girl and sold into slavery. By embodying the diasporic experience, this chapter gives voice to the complexities involved in the diasporic process, unmasks the pain that is often shrouded in academic discourse on diaspora, and compels the reader to think about diasporas not only as groups, but also as individuals with unique life experiences. More importantly, this chapter summons the reader to think about diasporization and rediasporization as both instantaneous and continuous processes.

Keywords:   Dia, diasporization, rediasporization, Slavery, repair
