Program Notes

Caribbean men migrated to Panamá to work on its railroad (1850–1855), French-supported canal (1881–1898), and the successful United States canal (1904–1914). These Colón Men, taking the name of Panamá's port city, were defined by their migration to and work in the Central American country. Appearing in historical, literary, lyrical, and personal narratives, the figure's cockiness, possessions, cosmopolitanism, canal-forged masculinity, and even the illnesses he contracted distinguish him. Because of the significance of one of the Caribbean's largest internal migrations and the construction of the Panamá Canal, the Colón Man has come to signify the real and imagined possibilities of both.
