Writers, researchers, teachers, and lecturers, we often work collaboratively (on a wide range of ethnographic topics), but Sally writes more on aesthetics and museums, while Rich focuses more on ethnographic history and human rights. Since the mid-1960s, we've been learning and writing about Maroons, descendants of rebel slaves throughout the Americas (but particularly in Suriname and French Guiana). Our geographical interests cover Afro-America, from Brazil to Toronto. After being based in Martinique for more than thirty years, we now spend the bulk of our time on Coquina Key, Florida.

For many years, we have served as book review editors for the world's oldest scholarly journal on the Caribbean, the New West Indian Guide, which is now fully accessible, gratis, on-line: https://brill.com/nwig

The "Books" section (click above) presents most of our work that's been published between two covers.
