From the last decades of 20th Century, African migrations expanded themselves not only to Europe but also to countries like Argentina, impelled by devastating economic circumstances that followed structural adjustment programs, wars or political persecution. Nevertheless, although these displacements differed from those of times of slave trade because free men and women who proceeded from decolonized countries took part of them, African migrations are tackled as a whole, with their origins in a homogeneous continent. Only national classification is considered, but related to realities that are enclosed in borders of colonial times. Besides, processes of insertion have been analized taking into account only the culture of host society. Face to this perspective, we want to discuss African migration relying on the complexity of their history. The proposal is to reflect about the limitations that imply continental, diaspora or post-colonial nation-state references, far from the real dimension of immigrants’ culture and memory, hindering any serious insertion policies.
