Interracial intercourse mattered to the British colonial kingdom in West Africa. In Crossing the colour Line, Carina E. Ray is going past this truth to bare how Gold Coasters—their social practices, pursuits, and anxieties—shaped and outlined those powerfully charged family throughout racial strains. The interaction among African and ecu views and practices, argues Ray, reworked those relationships into key websites for consolidating colonial rule and for contesting its racial and gendered hierarchies of power.

With rigorous method and cutting edge analyses, Ray brings Ghana and Britain right into a unmarried analytic body by means of studying situations in either locales. Intimate family members among black males and white girls in Britain’s port towns come to be an influential a part of the background of interracial intercourse and empire in ways in which are hooked up to instead of eclipsed by way of family among eu males and African ladies within the colony.

Based on wealthy archival proof and unique interviews, the e-book strikes throughout diversified registers, moving from the micropolitics of person disciplinary circumstances opposed to colonial officials who “kept” neighborhood ladies to transatlantic networks of relatives, empire, and anticolonial resistance. during this approach, Ray cuts to the center of the way interracial intercourse turned a resource of colonial anxiousness and nationalist agitation through the first 1/2 the 20th century.
