AFRICAN
AMERICAN




African Americans, also referred to as Black Americans or Afro-Americans,
is an ethnic group of citizens or residents of the United States with
total or partial ancestry from any of the native populations of Sub-Saharan
Africa. The term may also be used to include only those individuals who are
descended from African slaves. As a compound adjective, the term is usually
hyphenated as African-American.

African Americans constitute the second largest racial and ethnic minority
in the United States. Most African Americans are of West and Central African
descent and are descendants of enslaved blacks within the boundaries of the
present United States. However, immigrants from African, Caribbean, Central
America, and South American nations and their descendants may or may not
also self-identify with the term.

AFRICAN-AMERICAN
CULTURE




African-American culture, also known as black culture, in the
United States refers to the cultural contributions of African
Americans to the culture of the United States, either as part
of or distinct from American culture.

The distinct identity of African-American culture is rooted in
the historical experience of the African-American people,
including the Middle Passage. The culture is both distinct from
and enormously influential to American culture as a whole.

African-American culture is rooted in West and Central Africa.
Understanding its identity within the culture of the United
States it is, in the anthropological sense, conscious of its
origins as largely a blend of West and Central African cultures.

Although slavery greatly restricted the ability of African-Americans
to practice their original cultural traditions, many practices, values
and beliefs survived, and over time have modified and/or blended with
European cultures and other cultures such as that of Native Americans.

African-American identity was established during the slavery period,
producing a dynamic culture that has had and continues to have a
profound impact on American culture as a whole, as well as that of
the broader world.

BLACK PEOPLE




Black people is a term used in certain countries, often in socially
based systems of racial classification or of ethnicity, to describe
persons who are perceived to be dark-skinned compared to other given
populations. As such, the meaning of the expression varies widely
both between and within societies, and depends significantly on
context. For many other individuals, communities and countries, "black"
is also perceived as a derogatory, outdated, reductive or otherwise
unrepresentative label, and as a result is neither used nor defined.
