  • Black Hair and Textures of Defensiveness
    • Abstract: Full pink lips part to reveal even white teeth. Carefully formed words issue forth: I’m on my way to work. It’s always a performance. I perform for them and I make them perform for me. Today I’m going to let them touch me. I know they want to. They told me. They told me at work. I’m on my way to work and I’m going to perform for them. I’m gonna let them touch me. I know they’ll like it. I’m on my way to work.1 We see a tight shot of a woman’s mouth as she says these words. She speaks slowly, sometimes pausing to lick her lips. The screen is filled with lips, teeth, and light brown skin. The screen fades to black and suddenly we are “at work”—signaled by a static shot over a row of cubicles ... Read More

  • “Teach His People the Value of Unity”: Black Diaspora, Women, and Una
           Marson’s Pocomania
    • Abstract: Caribbean women’s literature that does not fit male-centered regimes of blackness is often left out of genealogies of black thought. Such appears to be the case of the early-twentieth-century Jamaican poet, playwright, radio programmer, and activist Una Marson, who “altered London theatre history by bringing, for the first time, all-black casts to the stage in serious drama” and “directly confronted the double bind of colonial imitation.”1 Marson has been obscured by canonical Caribbean male writers who followed her and for whom she helped create a platform through the BBC’s Caribbean Voices, such as George Lamming, Sam Selvon, V. S. Naipaul, Victor Reid, and Derek Walcott, in the midcentury boom of ... Read More

  • The Song Required of Captivity: Just Above My Head and the Trans-ness of
           James Baldwin
    • Abstract: “The difficulty is your life refuses summation—it always did.” The work of James Baldwin—from his short fiction, novels, essays, and public speaking—spans a crucial period of American history. Writing his first major work, Go Tell It on the Mountain, in 1953 and penning his last collection of nonfiction, The Price of the Ticket, in 1985, Baldwin literarily shaped, and was shaped by, the political vicissitudes of the mid-twentieth century. He was a man who was, as Carolyn Wedin Sylvander says, “nothing short of courageous”; Baldwin used his various forms of language to grapple with a tumultuous world, to harness the chaos of race, sexuality, nationality, and class. His life as well as his ... Read More

  • The National Council of Negro Women and South Africa: Black
           Internationalism, Motherhood, and the Cold War
    • Abstract: Founded in 1945, the African Children’s Feeding Scheme (ACFS) was established with the aim of providing black children in Johannesburg with at least one full meal a day.1 Set up by the white English missionary Father Trevor Huddleston, this initiative was a direct response to the efforts of the apartheid government to slash state-subsidized school meals for nonwhite children.2 Relying on voluntary contributions and often “on the brink of financial disaster,” the charitable organization came to represent a small practical challenge to policies designed to dismantle black educational provisions during the early years of apartheid.3 In desperate need of funds and operating in a hostile political environment ...

  • All Books Reviewed by the Palimpsest Editorial Collective
    • Abstract: Jane Beck, a Vermont folklorist, happened upon the story of Daisy Turner, a descendant of captive Africans whose family settled in New England post-emancipation, through providence and a newspaper clipping sent to her by a folk singer and collector. When Beck began to interview her, Turner was one hundred years old. Beck had to contend not only with Turner’s memory as a primary source, which she understood to be faulty—Frederick Douglass rewrote his life and times three times—but with Turner’s own tendency to pepper her kinship ties with embellishments that have some kernels of truth. In the process, though, Turner was able to lead Beck on a journey traversing more than two hundred years of an ... Read More

  • China’s Second Continent: How a Million Migrants Are Building a New
           Empire in Africa by Howard French (review)
    • Abstract: Journalist Howard French presents a fascinating, fifteen-country African travelogue and quick study of twenty-first-century Afro-Sino socioeconomic relations. Cold war geopolitics left an opening for the world’s largest economy to enter into soft power relations with Africa. French presents readers with the good, the bad, and the ugly. Is China’s engagement a form of neocolonialism? Will the country’s rapacious appetite for natural resources leave the continent bereft and debt-ridden, or will African countries be able to leverage this new engagement and investment for the future? Sadly, gangster capitalism abounds on the continent with this new source of revenue, but so too does hope and emerging African ... Read More

  • William Wells Brown: An African American Life by Ezra Greenspan (review)
    • Abstract: A sweeping biography of one of America’s most inventive, talented, and often overlooked sons, Ezra Greenspan’s William Wells Brown: An African American Life tracks the elusive figure and life of former slave, abolitionist, writer, actor, and popular historian William Wells Brown. Born into slavery, Brown’s story has been over the years eclipsed by that of his more famous contemporary, the fugitive slave and abolitionist writer Frederick Douglass. Greenspan reveals a complex man who, due to circumstances and out of necessity, played fast and loose with the details of his reinvented life pre- and post-slavery. Brown is most well known for his novel Clotel, which helped keep alive the rumors of ... Read More

  • Speaking in Tongues & Dancing Diaspora: Black Women Writing and Performing
           by Mae G. Henderson (review)
    • Abstract: Mae Henderson’s Speaking in Tongues & Dancing Diaspora: Black Women Writing and Performing is a collection of previously published essays written by the black feminist theorist over the years. Henderson’s oft-cited and most stirring essay, “Speaking in Tongues,” which in many respects revolutionized the uses of postmodern theory in analyses of African American women’s literature, appears here as well. Readers looking for previously unpublished work, however, won’t find it here. Filled with Henderson’s riveting insights, Speaking in Tongues is more of a “greatest hits” compilation of a towering intellectual figure in the fields of feminist theory and African diaspora literature and cultural ...

  • Cuba’s Racial Crucible: The Sexual Economy of Social Identities,
           1750–2000 by Karen Y. Morrison (review)
    • Abstract: Karen Morrison’s richly detailed study examines and challenges understandings of racial formations in Cuba, particularly as they relate to sexual choices and how those choices informed social identity and mobility within the primary organizing social structure of the family. Morrison also delves into the hopes (and myths) of the Cuban Revolution as a sort of tabula rasa regarding social equality, discrimination, and racial hybridity. ... Read More

  • Tropical Apocalypse: Haiti and the Caribbean End Times by Martin Munro
           (review)
    • Abstract: Martin Munro’s interdisciplinary study of Haiti, and the broader Caribbean, explores apocalyptic themes in the cultural productions of these island nations. Inexorably shaped by the disastrous (apocalyptic) encounters among Europeans, Amerindians, and Africans, Munro knits the tensions and upheavals in Haitian history, culture, literary expression, environment, and ecology into a seamless fabric. ...

  • Lucy Negro Redux by Caroline Randall Williams (review)
    • Abstract: Caroline Randall Williams’s debut book of poetry directly engages Shakespeare’s sequence of sonnets to a “Dark Lady” as rhythmically and richly as the originals. Sensual, serious, playful yet scholarly, in between exquisitely layered images and pages, Williams takes the reader on her research journey to England to discover the identity of the Bard’s Dark Lady. She weaves the experiences of this wiry-haired black woman, Lucy Negro or Black Luce, with her own personal experiences around issues of race, sexuality, gender, identity, and popular culture. ...

  • Bouki Fait Gombo: A History of the Slave Community of Habitation Haydel
           (Whitney Plantation) Louisiana, 1750–1860 by Ibrahima Seck (review)
    • Abstract: For those who haven’t visited the Whitney Plantation just outside of New Orleans, it is not representative of the hoop-skirted, mint-julep stereotype. Nor is Ibrahima’s book. Rather, the story of the Habitation Haydel is told from the perspective of its slaves. And Seck’s finely researched book provides a narrative history of that plantation, its slave community, and the culinary and cultural productions they created. ... Read More

  • White Privilege and Black Rights: The Injustice of U.S. Police Racial
           Profiling and Homicide by Naomi Zack (review)
    • Abstract: Frustrated with the daily reporting of overpolicing and murder, Naomi Zack offers readers a quick and hard-hitting discussion of civil rights, injustice, and restorative justice in the United States. In the first few pages of the book, Zack immediately cuts to the heart of the rhetoric of white privilege. A nerve-wracking shorthand for the structural/systemic racism that affords white people advantages, the contemporary and lazy discourse of white privilege actually allows, for Zack, those who lack class privilege a way out of the discussion of antiblack racism and also inadvertently “flatters” whites. If Zack’s book does nothing else, it will hopefully encourage those who use the discourse of white ... Read More
