Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to explore religious and political affiliations represented in the symbolic artifact of dress,1 specifically, a black suit as a site of multiple meanings in African Caribbean communities within the wider context and experience of diaspora.2 In this introductory section, I will sketch out the theoretical framework within which this particular case is considered.
