The purpose of this chapter has been to illustrate some of the differences between the Black populations of New York City and Miami. It also has shown the salience of recognizing that the Black population is not a homogeneous group and that proper understanding behooves us to deconstruct this population into its significant components: U.S.-born Blacks, West Indians as a whole, Haitians, Jamaicans, and Sub-Saharan African-born Blacks.
