The concept of the African Diaspora generally refers to people of color who can trace their origins back to the continent of Africa but are currently living in countries outside of Africa. Historically, this designation has been applied to those who descend from Eastern and Western Africans that were enslaved during the Atlantic Slave Trade between the 16th and 18th centuries.
The diaspora in popular culture is used to refer to the entire population of Black people outside of Africa. It is estimated that there are over 210 million people worldwide that make up the African Diaspora. The largest groups are in Brazil, the United States of America, and Haiti.
