This article seeks areas of reciprocity and overlap between the theories of Gilroy and Glissant of the last twenty-five or so years. Its point of departure is the conviction that both authors progress from a focus on specific black communities to viewing the black postcolonial condition in general as a harbinger for, and paradigmatic of, the leading cultural trends which characterise today's era of globalisation.
