  • Anthologies, Ontologies, and Hauntologies: Resurrecting Léon-Gontran
           Damas
    • Abstract: In his excellent and most welcome collection of essays, The First World Festival of Negro Arts, Dakar 1966,1 David Murphy illustrates the vibrant art scene in the young republic with a thorough overview of a range of Senegalese authors and artists. And yet, someone is missing: Leon Gontran-Damas, the Martinican-born, French Guyanese cofounder of the Négritude movement, who put together several collections that included works by Senegelase authors. In fact, it was Damas who provided his friend, Négritude cofounder and Senegalese president, Léopold Sédar Senghor, a first copy of what would be his second wide-ranging anthology of African voices in five languages, Nouvelle somme de poésie du monde noir/A New Survey of ...

  • Rise Up': New Directions in the Caribbean Women's Bildungsroman
    • Abstract: In Lin-Manuel Miranda's phenomenally successful Broadway hip hop musical Hamilton!, the anthemic phrase "rise up!" returns several times as a lyrical and musical refrain. The Puerto Rican identity of Hamilton!'s author and the Nevisian origins of its title character suggest that the idea of "uplift"—the quest for social ascension often associated with African American and American culture more broadly—is something that can also be seen as a core theme in Caribbean cultural expression. In fact, this same leitmotif of rising up has been central in the Caribbean coming-of-age novel, from Jane's Career by H.G. DeLisser to canonical mid-century novels by George Lamming, Sam Selvon, V.S. Naipaul, and Jacques-Stephen ... Read More

  • "No Choice but to Strive": Gender, State Power, and Resistance in the Life
           Narratives of Emma Mashinini, Mamphela Ramphele, and Wangari Maathai
    • Abstract: People often ask me how I could have survived under the conditions I had been subjected to in my life. The short answer is that if you are faced with adversity, you have no choice but to strive for survival. It is amazing what internal reserves come to the fore under stressful conditions—mostly reserves you did not even know you possessed until they are needed.For black women, autobiography has functioned as both a way to invent the self and as a form of resistance. Johnnie M. Stover asserts that autobiography "presents itself as a vehicle for the establishment of self while at the same time allowing black women the capability of attacking the sociological, political, and literary systems that attempt to bury that ...

    • Abstract: Sponsored by the callie house research center for the Study of Global Black Cultures and Politics, the second annual Black Feminist Methods and Methodologies Working Symposium held at Vanderbilt University in October 2017 focused on black girls and black girlhood. A symposium developed as a space for early to midcareer black women scholars to present their works in progress, the interdisciplinary two-day gathering featured speakers from education, history, and literary and women's and gender studies. A significant and necessary purpose of the working symposium on black girls and girlhood was to disrupt the disappearing and devaluing of black girls and women within academic research and in program-based ...

  • We Were Eight Years in Power—An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates

    • Abstract: Ta-Nehisi Coates latest work, "We Were Eight Years In Power—An American Tragedy," is a collection of what the author deems his most seminal and poignant essays during his time at The Atlantic magazine as a journalist, coinciding with the eight-year presidency of Barack Obama. At first read, I lingered particularly on the word "we." Who was the "we" that was in power, and why were the eight years in power considered an American tragedy' Had "we" failed, meaning "we" as black people' Had President Obama failed' Had "we," black people, failed to ask and get what "we" needed from America's first black president' Or, was the "we" an inclusionary term for all Americans, of all colors, cultures, and creeds' Upon closer ...

  • Beyond Respectability: The Intellectual Thought of Race Women by Brittney
           Cooper (review)
    • Abstract: Beyond Respectability charts what Brittney Cooper describes as an intellectual genealogy and intellectual geography of race women. This two-pronged approach explores the spaces in which black women undertook the work of theorizing race, gender, and leadership across a variety of intellectual fields. The women studied here were essayists, political theorists, and law practitioners. Writings by Fannie Barrier Williams and Mary Church Terrell in the nineteenth century, and Pauli Murray and Toni Cade Bambara in the twentieth century, come together as testaments to the long history of black women's oft-unrecognized intellectual labor. Beyond Respectability presents a list of black women thinkers, with the act of listing ... Read More

  • Black Post-Blackness: The Black Arts Movement and Twenty-First-Century
           Aesthetics by Margo Natalie Crawford (review)
    • Abstract: The term "post-blackness" may raise the specter of facile disavowals of the enduring realities of racism in the United States. However, Margo Crawford resituates its origins in the field of African American culture. In so doing, she reclaims its generative power and deploys it with great care and nuance in theorizing "Black post-blackness." Crawford's theorizing of the Black Arts Movement's "simultaneous investment in blackness and a type of freedom that broke the boundaries of blackness" (Crawford, 4) is rooted in a temporalizing of the movement's engagement with race. It emphasizes the anticipation, the questioning of what is to come, as articulated in the artistic production of Black Arts Movement poets. This ... Read More

  • Epistrophies: Jazz and the Literary Imagination by Brent Hayes Edwards
           (review)
    • Abstract: The figure at the heart of Epistrophies is the musician-writer. Brent Edwards' innovative study of jazz literature redefines the term as not only literary production influenced by music but also as writings by jazz musicians. This broader definition in turn expands the range of texts that may be considered in the genre of jazz literature: poems, song titles, liner notes, and record reviews form part of the textual landscape of writings that complement, nuance, and theorize different jazz forms. Edwards draws on an impressive range of figures working in the interconnected spaces of literature and music. Works by Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, James Weldon Johnson, and others reveal the rich interplay between ... Read More

  • Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era by Ashley Farmer
           (review)
    • Abstract: Ashley Farmer's Remaking Black Power opens with a mixed-media image of a black woman carrying a bag of groceries and declaring her opposition to the Vietnam war and her support for African liberation and voter registration. This image captures the complex and multifaceted constructions of black womanhood in the Black Power era that Farmer examines in her study. Farmer shows that these conversations on race, gender, and class were not solely controlled by male activists despite the prevailing view of Black Power as a male-dominated movement. Foregrounding artwork, essays, and speeches by black women activists, this volume makes a critical intervention in the study of black activism in the mid-twentieth century by ... Read More

    • Abstract: Spill: Scenes of Black Feminist Fugitivity makes an important intervention in a diasporic conversation about black women's fugitivity by exploring the linkages between historical trauma and possibilities of being in the present and in the future. Gumbs's collection of poetry is a conversation with Hortense Spillers and her anthology of essays Black, White, and in Color: Essays on American Literature and Culture, a conversation that spills beyond the pages of the book into other physical and intellectual spaces. Gumbs does not set out to write about black feminist thinkers but rather with them. She deemphasizes the monograph as the primary medium of intellectual engagement and draws on other modes of expression ... Read More

  • Sex Workers, Psychics, and Numbers Runners: Black Women in New York City's
           Underground Economy by LaShawn Harris (review)
    • Abstract: Street peddlers, sex workers, fencers, supernatural consultants, and numbers runners come together in LaShawn Harris's study of black women in New York City's informal economy. Harris shows how black women's participation in the underground economy allowed them to disrupt ideas of decorum and respectability. The specificity of New York's urban setting allowed women to pursue and create new opportunities for themselves in addition to but also beyond domestic work. Harris's study therefore moves the discourse on working-class black women beyond the sphere of domestic labor and the need for financial uplift, by investigating the myriad reasons why black women participated in unlawful work. The quest for pleasure, a ... Read More

    • Abstract: How should we read African American literature' Or more precisely, how might we productively read literature about the past of slavery today' Levy-Hussen contends that neoslave narratives demand more than a therapeutic or prohibitive reading, terms that are unpacked with precision throughout this monograph. Rather, these rewritings of the past offer complicated ideas about identification with their historical contexts and protagonists, by recognizing the myriad reasons why identification may be desirable yet elusive. Levy-Hussen brings together an impressive array of black writers, including Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler, Gayl Jones, and Alice Randall, and puts forth a theoretical apparatus that presents new ways ...

  • To Be Free and French: Citizenship in France's Atlantic Empire by Lorelle
           Semley (review)
    • Abstract: To Be Free and French begins with the Haitian Revolution and ends with the First World Festival of the Negro Arts in Dakar. Between those bookends is a temporally and geographically expansive study of the different models of citizenship envisioned by people living in the French empire over at least two centuries. This study excavates the voices of the women and men whose citizenship practices shaped ideas of race, gender, and belonging in France, and places these stories alongside the contributions of an array of political figures such as Toussaint L'Ouverture, Kojo Tovalou Houénou, and Gerty Archimède. A study on citizenship and empire is necessarily transnational, and Semley's work is attentive to the nuances in ... Read More

  • Bricktop's Paris: African American Women in Paris between the Two World
           Wars by T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting (review)
    • Abstract: Bricktop's Paris is a two-part narrative that accomplishes the remarkable feat of retracing the journeys of no less than twenty-five African American women through Paris in the interwar years. The first part of the text charts the dizzying rise and sometimes ignominious fall of the performers and club owners who contributed to creating the vibrant and tumultuous community of Harlem in Montmartre, as well as the writers and artists who shaped the cultural scene in the French capital. Ada "Bricktop" Smith is the central node in a story that interweaves the lives of more famous figures such as Josephine Baker and Florence Embry Jones, and those of lesser-known but equally influential women including Adelaide Hall and ...

  • Seeking Imperialism's Embrace: National Identity, Decolonization, and
           Assimilation in the French Caribbean by Kristen Stromberg Childers
           (review)
    • Abstract: Seeking Imperialism's Embrace makes a useful intervention in the study of decolonization in the Antilles by taking as one of its points of departure the implications of the US's presence in the Caribbean during World War II. Set against the backdrop of the ever-present fear of an American invasion and takeover of the French islands, this critical exploration of the collective and sometimes conflicting claims to Frenchness in Martinique and Guadeloupe in wartime explains the postwar move toward political integration into metropolitan France. Childers turns an attentive eye toward the intertwining of history, geography, literary production, and international relations between the French Caribbean and the United ... Read More
