For those who are confused about race/ethnicity. “Black” is a race with several ethnicities. The arrows above demonstrate the migration of enslaved black people from Africa to other parts of the world.
Black line = African Americans = descendants of enslaved blacks in the USA
Red lines = Afro-Latinxs = descendants of enslaved blacks in Latin America (Central America, South America, and some of the Caribbean-Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, etc.)
Blue line = Afro-Caribbeans = descendants of enslaved blacks in the Caribbean (ex: Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad, etc.)
Africa = Africans
All of these people are black. But not all black people are African American.
Famous black people Africans: Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, Iman, Idris Elba African Americans: Michelle Obama, Oprah, Beyonce, Jay-Z Afro-Latinx: Celia Cruz, Gina Torres, Zoe Saldana, Laz Alonso Afro-Caribbeans: Bob Marley, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Wyclef
*I should mention there are black people in other parts of the world as well (Afro-Palestinians, Afro-Iranian, etc.)
**I made this in a hurry, let me know if anything is off
