  • Editors' Introduction
    • Abstract: Writing by black women authors and poets of the African Diaspora—from Lucille Clifton and Elizabeth Alexander to British writer Bernardine Evaristo and Toni Morrison—takes center stage in this issue of Palimpsest. Rounding out the issue's literary focus is historical-sociologist Michael O. West's seminal rumination on global Black Power and Caribbean and Afro-Canadian politics in "History vs. Historical Memory: Rosie Douglas, Black Power on Campus, and the Canadian Color Conceit" in our Art of Engagement Forum. Divided into two parts that will be extended over the next two issues of Palimpsest, part one of West's essay dovetails with the primarily literary thrust of this issue as it explores the literary and ...

  • Neo-S(k)in Trade: White Skin, Black Bodies in Bernardine Evaristo's Blonde
           Roots
    • Abstract: How would they like us to make slaves of and hold them in cruel slavery, and murder them as they do us'White myth making around the black female body is inextricably linked to the larger African diaspora, that space of rupture, dispersion, and displacement. The presence of white hegemony, the black female body as property, the pervasive phenomenon of sexual abuse, and the experience of trauma constitute significant motifs … that are indicative of the reality of black diasporic women's existential experiences.Responding to the question, "What sparked Blonde Roots'" Bernardine Evaristo explains, "I wracked my brains about how I could write about [the transatlantic slave trade] in a way that enabled people to see it ...

  • Breaking the Back of Words: Sound and Subversion in Toni Morrison's
           Beloved*
    • Abstract: I wanted … the books … to have an effortlessness and an artlessness, and a non-book quality, so that they would have a sound.To find the words to speak the unspeakable about slave experience and memory in her novels, Toni Morrison infuses her writing politically with sound, producing an aural literary aesthetic that challenges master narratives. Indeed, she reimagines the narratives of slave men and women that have been lost to history, recovering what Karla F.C. Holloway calls "the language of creative generation" by appropriating and reformulating the English language to challenge its discursive power.1 As Morrison conveys in her groundbreaking study Playing in the Dark, language is inseparably bound up with the ...

  • "[B]lack and Going On Women": Lucille Clifton, Elizabeth Alexander, and
           the Poetry of Grief
    • Abstract: In an elegiac account published in the New Yorker shortly after Lucille Clifton's death in February, 2010, poet and critic Elizabeth Alexander wrote that poets across the country were "shocked that she had left us, for I do not think there is an American poet as beloved as Clifton, or one whose influence radiated as widely."1 Alexander evoked these radiant circles again when discussing Clifton with Honorée Jeffers and other black women writers in a podcast later that summer: "I certainly promise you," she said, "we have not even begun to take the measure of the influence of this body of work."2 She is right. The small yet growing body of scholarship on Clifton's poetry tends to treat her work in isolation, and does ... Read More

  • Grounds of Engagement: Apartheid-Era African American and South African
           Writing by Stéphane Robolin (review)
    • Abstract: In Grounds of Engagement, Stéphane Robolin asks us to consider the sites of familiarity and difference at which Black writers in varying spaces constructed shared politics and poetics of resistance. This study explores the conversations between African American and South African writers during the apartheid years, drawing on a wealth of archival documents to reveal poetics of Black transnational relations that is both spatial and textual. With beautiful prose and a careful eye for detail, Robolin explores the friendship between Richard Wright and Peter Abrahams, and the articulations of a shared geography in each writer's work. The remarkable complexity of Bessie Head's epistolary exchanges with Alice Walker, Nikki ... Read More

  • Are All the Women Still White': Rethinking Race, Expanding Feminisms
           ed. by Janell Hobson (review)
    • Abstract: The landmark study on black feminism, All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave: Black Women's Studies, was a much-needed contribution to the conversation on intersectional oppressions. Thirty years later, Janell Hobson situates her edited volume Are All the Women Still White' as a responsive engagement with the conversation that her predecessors initiated. In a notable expansion of the earlier volume's focus, Hobson emphasizes a transnational approach to tracing a genealogy of black women's political organizing and intellectual work. This collection places Alicia Garza's "Herstory of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement" alongside Gina Ulysse's reflections on the possibilities of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Marisa Fuentes describes her methodology in this project as "reading along the bias grain" in order to render black women visible and audible in the archives. Pushing back against archival silences has been the stuff of many scholarly works about the African diaspora. Fuentes' approach, however, stands out for its skill at stretching like a piece of fabric—by the author's own description—archival fragments in order to tell the stories and reconstruct the humanity of enslaved women in Barbados in the eighteenth century. Dispossessed Lives is not a book about slaves, a term that Fuentes carefully avoids, because it does not take for granted the dehumanization of enslaved women in Bridgetown. Rather, it is a book ...

  • Mr. and Mrs. Doctor by Julie Iromuanya (review)
    • Abstract: In her debut novel, Julie Iromuanya presents the American dream with an honesty that lays bare the contradictions, hopes, and fears that shape the quintessential immigrant experience in the United States. Her protagonists, Job and Ifi, a Nigerian couple in an arranged marriage, constantly work to maintain the illusion of having "made it" in America, an illusion that is always on the verge of being shattered by the realities of class and racial differences in their adopted country. The story weaves between contemporary Nebraska and Nigeria, as well as haunting memories of the Biafran war, in order to show the complex weight of generations of hopes and expectations that fuel Ifi's and Job's dreams. Their encounters ... Read More

  • Freedom as Marronage by Neil Roberts (review)
    • Abstract: What is freedom' How might the practices of enslaved people and the legacies of those practices today allow us to articulate a nuanced definition of this elusive concept' In Freedom as Marronage, Neil Roberts provides timely answers to these questions. Roberts weaves together the voices of key Afrodiasporic intellectuals from Angela Davis and Aimé Césaire to Edwidge Danticat and Frantz Fanon in order to articulate a theory of freedom that is undergirded by the writings and experiences of enslaved people. Roberts's work presents an innovative and lucid definition of freedom, not through marronage but rather as marronage. Individuals, groups, and states struggle against and resist slavery and imperialism by moving ... Read More

  • Charleston Syllabus: Readings on Race, Racism, and Racial Violence eds. by
           Chad Williams, Kidada E. Williams, and Keisha N. Blain (review)
    • Abstract: Charleston Syllabus was born from the hashtag syllabus movement on social media, an urgent response by scholars to viral videos of racial violence in the United States. While many of these syllabi remain useful crowdsourced documents online, Charleston Syllabus has evolved into a print resource that will be indispensable to teachers and students of African American and African diaspora studies. This comprehensive work responds directly to the racially motivated mass shooting at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on the evening of June 17, 2015. The editors assembled a carefully selected array of documents, including extracts from slave narratives, scholarly monographs, poetry, and historical texts such ... Read More

  • Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness by Simone Browne (review)
    • Abstract: What would it mean to read blackness across space, time, and in a variety of texts' How might the plan of the Brooks slave ship, the layout of an airport, and singer Solange Knowles's Afro serve as different sites for reading the surveillance of blackness over time' In Dark Matters, Simone Browne assembles a truly impressive array of texts in order to examine the ways in which race shapes practices of surveillance. Browne is interested too in what she terms "dark sousveillance," the resistive modes of being that allow black people to counter racialized forms of scrutiny. Heavy-hitting theorists such as Frantz Fanon, bell hooks, and Sylvia Wynter provide a framework for this study's sharp analysis of the racialized ... Read More

  • Words of Witness: Black Women's Autobiography in the Post-Brown Era by
           Angela Ann Ards (review)
    • Abstract: The long tradition of black life writing dates back to early slave narratives, in which authors wove together personal testimony and political analysis in order to situate themselves as speaking subjects against the silencing mechanisms of slavery. The "ethics of self-fashioning" at work in the creation of such narratives is the focus of Angela Ards's book. Words of Witness examines the autobiographical texts of Melba Beal, Rosemary Bray, June Jordan, Edwidge Danticat, and Eisa Davis against the backdrop of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling, not to situate these testimonies in an imagined post-civil rights era, but rather to explore their engagement with twentieth-century political movements. Ards's ...

  • History vs. Historical Memory: Rosie Douglas, Black Power on Campus, and
           the Canadian Color Conceit
    • Abstract: Rosie Douglas was prime minister of the eastern Caribbean island-nation of Dominica for just eight months when he died suddenly in October 2000. The apparent cause of death, a heart attack, would be disputed. Some Dominicans suspected foul play, giving rise to rumors that the prime minister, who was loved and loathed in equal measure in and out of his country, had been the victim of some perfidious plot. The reception of Douglas's death is something of a metaphor for his life.From the standpoint of historical memory, the most enduring riddle in Douglas's very colorful public life is the part he is reputed to have played in a crisis at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, Canada in 1969. An event with deep ... Read More
