Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting
Afro-Asian Connections and the Myth of Cultural Purity

In this book, historian Vijay Prashad refuses to engage the typical racial discussion that matches people of colour against each other while institutionalizing the primacy of the white majority. Instead he examines more than five centuries of remarkable historical evidence of cultural and political interaction between Blacks and Asians around the world, in which they have exchanged cultural and religious symbols, appropriated personas and lifestyles, and worked together to achieve political change.
