In this work, which is a significant summary of one of the chapters of her doctoral thesis, entitled "Africanism in the Dominican Republic", Dr. Celsa Albert Batista, posits that the Dominican Republic is the first Afro-descendant people in America. And she goes further, by sustaining the idea that with these contributions from Africans, the configuration of a new physiognomy in the American region began, it is the Caribbean.
The reference to this new geographic physiognomy, originates, because "after more than five (5) centuries, the balance of the African population to the American continent, reveals a new identity image and the expression of new cultures, product of the ethnic mix culture that has shaped the peoples of America and the Caribbean cultures, product of the exchange between the peoples that manifest this diversity" (p.16).
