Blacuit


Bla-cuit (pronounced in English “Black-it”) is the people and cultures that are produced through the creolization of the African Diaspora; the mixing of African people and cultures across the globe with other people and cultures.

Etymology:

  • Bla – of the word black, which is the quality or state of the achromatic color of least lightness (bearing the least resemblance to white); the Black Atlantic

  • Cuit – new wine boiled; in French – cooked, baked, stewed

Blacuit is literally “the stew of Blackness that is the Black Atlantic” – baked into the fabric of western hemispheric life as we know it, and arguably our global existence.
