Cape Verdean Americans are the only major group of Americans to have made the voyage from Africa to the United States voluntarily. Their homeland, a drought-stricken archipelago off the west coast of Africa, had long been colonized by the Portuguese. Their homeland, a drought-stricken archipelago off the west coast of Africa, had long been colonized by the Portuguese

Cape Verdean Americans are the only major group of Americans to have made the voyage from Africa to the United States voluntarily. Arriving in New England first as crew members of whaling vessels, these Afro-Portuguese immigrants later came as permanent settlers in their own packet ships.

Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Centennial Series. Marilyn Halter combines oral history with analyses of ships' records to create a detailed picture of the history and adaptation patterns of the Cape Verdean Americans, who identified themselves in terms of ethnicity but whose mixed African-European ancestry led their new society to view them as a racial group.

The first Cape Verdean immigrants aboard New England whaling ships, which would often pick up crewmen off the coast of Cape Verde. Yankee captains valued Cape Verdeans as crews, because they worked hard to save what they could while on board vessel they could be hired for much less money than American seamen. Furthermore, they made a disciplined crew. Cape Verdean migration to the United States in the 19th century and early 20th century was composed of the islands' poorer classes. p. 148. ^ Some Kind of Funny Porto Rican.

When I found this book, I couldn't believe it. My husband, who had a grandparent who was Cape Verdean, had always wondered how he grew an Afro if he was Caucasian. He has been reading it every night, and loves this book. It is definitely a heavier read in parts, but if you have ancestors who were Cape Verdean, I almost guarantee you will keep reading. It answers so many questions.

Dr. Halter's book is a great read from a research perspective. She gives the stories extra depth by providing her research into the many areas covered. She also conducts interviews with some immigrants and their children, which definitely give some life to the readings. I read it together with Manuel E. Costa's "The Making of Cape Verdean". Nice complement.

Amazing read!

A very interesting read. Could have used better technical editing (it's pretty wordy).

I am looking up my ancestry and was needing a book on the history of Cape Verde and came across "Between Race and Ethnicity:Cape Verdean American Immigrants,1860-1965 (Statue of Liberty Ellis Island) I am using it as a reference guide for names of ships and what life was like for my grandfather when he lived on the Cape Verde Islands and came here to the United States. I would recommend this book even if you are not looking up ancestry information. It is a very interesting read.

Bought this a few years ago, and gave it away. I bought this for ME, because these are my people, and I can't learn enough.

The book is very informative and thoroughly enjoyable. It makes me love and appreciate even more my Cape Verdean roots
I think this book is definetly a good research piece. I am the 2nd generation of Cape Verdeans living here in the U.S. Unfortunetly my parents did not speak the language to us. The author made herself very knowledgable regarding our culture, struggles and thoughts through generations. My father told us how my grandfather worked on a whaling ship going back and forth from Cape Verde to the U.S. til he bought property on Cape Cod, which I continue to tell my children and nieces and nephews and they are also proud of that. The author mentions interviewing some Cape Verdeans on the Cape where some of them have last names of relatives of mine....what great lengths this author has gone with this research to get accurate data, I am very impressed. I now say I am African-American rather than the black Portuguese which I was taught from my Grandmother, however since I am fair complexed I do tell people that I am Cape Verdean American when asked what am I...complextion was another issue brought up in this book which we are very familiar with. GREAT JOB!!! I was very please to read about my culture...One day I hope I do get to visit the Cape Verde Islands.
