  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: The first three essays in this issue examine the complex workings of history, memory, storytelling, and literary arts in the context of slavery and settler colonialism, and ask the questions: Who owns and controls narratives' Whose voice do we hear and read' Tracing a wide range of representations of Bras Coupé—a one-armed enslaved fugitive who hid in the swamps outside New Orleans and was murdered in 1837—John Bardes analyzes how the narratives about the character have been used by whites to delegitimize black self-rule and, in turn, how black storytelling inscribed narratives of black resistance and nationalism. Michael P. Taylor and Terence Wride survey the recovered poetry of Henry Tinhorn, a seventeen-year-old ... Read More

  • The Notorious Bras Coupé: A Slave Rebellion Replayed in Memory,
           History, and Anxiety
    • Abstract: Bras Coupé is one of the most influential, yet most understudied, American folk characters. In around 1834, a one-armed enslaved man named Squire escaped into New Orleans's outlying swamps, captivating the city's attention by repeatedly eluding recapture. Rumor had it that he led a large band of fugitive slaves and had murdered countless whites. Locals nicknamed him Bras Coupé, French for severed arm.Following Squire's 1837 murder, slaves and enslavers circulated dynamic accounts of this disfigured man, murderous and magical, haunting a marshy lair. By the late nineteenth century, Squire's legendary counterpart had leapt from contested memory into literature, and renowned novelists, including George Washington ... Read More

  • "Indian Kids Can't Write Sonnets": Re-membering the Poetry of Henry
           Tinhorn from the Intermountain Indian School
    • Abstract: In the late 1960s, hired to teach language arts at the Intermountain Indian School, Alexa West proposed a creative writing class that she described as a course for self-discovery. The school administrators' immediate response was simple: "Indian kids can't write sonnets."1 She persisted and ultimately received approval to incorporate creative writing as part of Intermountain's larger language arts program. West's class was not necessarily unique within the broader scope of boarding school pedagogy. In fact, she became part of a network of boarding school teachers who circulated their students' writings in a journal called the Arrow.2 In a letter exchange with the journal's editor, Terry D. Allen,3 West expressed ... Read More

  • The Vietnam War and Chicana/o Environmentalism in El Grito del Norte
           (1968–73)
    • Abstract: This essay addresses El Grito del Norte (EGDN), a Chicana/o nationalist newspaper published in Española, a small working-class town in northern New Mexico, from 1968 to 1973. The paper was originally formed to support the politics of La Alianza Federal de Mercedes (Federal Alliance of Land Grants), the organization led by Reies López Tijerina that in the 1960s and 1970s sought the restoration of land grants established under the Spanish and Mexican governments. Written and run by women, the paper was founded and edited by Elizabeth "Betita" Martínez (known previously as Elizabeth Sutherland), whose socialist and third-world feminist politics shaped the paper's concern with the connections between rural Chicana ...

  • Memphis Minnie's "Scientific Sound": Afro-Sonic Modernity and the Jukebox
           Era of the Blues
    • Abstract: On New Year's Eve of 1942, Langston Hughes saw Memphis Minnie perform at the 230 Club in Chicago. She plays electric guitar, at least a year even before Muddy Waters.1 In his front-page column in the Chicago Defender, "Here to Yonder," on January 9, 1943, Hughes observes that shelooks more than ever like a colored lady teacher in a neat Southern school about to say, "Children, the lesson is on page 14 today, paragraph 2." But Memphis Minnie says nothing of the sort. … [she] smiles. Her gold teeth flash for a split second. Her earrings tremble. Her left hand with dark red nails moves up and down the strings of the guitar's neck. Her right hand with the dice ring on it picks out the tune, throbs out the rhythm ... Read More

  • The Broken Windows of the Bronx: Putting the Theory in Its Place
    • Abstract: Broken glass everywherePublished to great fanfare and controversy in a 1982 issue of the Atlantic Monthly, James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling's "Broken Windows: The Police and Neighborhood Safety" sent shockwaves through social scientific and law enforcement circles, rippling out to recast conversations on safety and crime across the United States and beyond.1 Three decades later, the rise of the Movement for Black Lives and a renewed campaign against police violence has forced broken windows policing into this country's critical crosshairs, eliciting a host of grassroots and scholarly condemnations of the decades-old paradigm of policing. These urgent lines of inquiry have exposed how broken windows policing ... Read More

  • The University Fix and John Edgar Wideman's Philadelphia Fire
    • Abstract: John Edgar Wideman's novel Philadelphia Fire (1990) reconstructs the 1985 MOVE bombing, which left eleven people dead (including five children) and sixty-one homes destroyed.1 In the novel, Cudjoe, one of three black protagonists, returns to West Philadelphia from self-imposed exile abroad to find a missing boy who fled the bombing. Soon Cudjoe's inquiry expands to the underlying political, economic, and social forces that led the Philadelphia police to drop a satchel charge from a helicopter onto the compound that housed the liberation group. Cudjoe's quest to find meaning in MOVE's destruction swerves away from the archives of public documents or the public airing of grief and responsibility brought before the ... Read More

  • Football Fantasies: Neoliberal Habitus, Racial Governmentality, and
           National Spectacle
    • Abstract: We pin our hopes to the sporting public.On September 22, 2017, at a political rally in Propst Arena in Huntsville, Alabama, President Donald J. Trump invited the assembled crowd to fantasize about American football:Wouldn't you love to see one of these N.F.L. [National Football League] owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he's fired! He's fired!"1Trump's pronouncement troped on his ubiquitous catchphrase from the reality television program The Apprentice: "You're Fired." Simultaneously, Trump performed his signature "You're Fired" gesture—a Brechtian "gestus" in which Trump embodies the "gist" of a business owner's sovereign authority.2 ... Read More

Recognition and validation gave way to inspiration and aspiration—it was literally easier to draw breath. Here were nine principles about which a better world might turn: axes. Or else, here were nine rhetorical weapons, tools with which to chop, hack, or cut through the arborescent: axes. Here were words to live by, sacred script and profane scripture, gifted by a queer and trans-feminine Filipino American who relished her fatness and her fire.

  • Midterm Evaluations, Swing State Aesthetics
    • Abstract: Ohio Artists for Freedoms opened on the final day of August, a Friday. On my four-hour drive down I-71 from Cleveland that day, with the hot sun kept at bay thanks to a thin layer of gray clouds, I kept alternating between the radio broadcasts of funerals for two national (and international) figures: Aretha Franklin and John McCain. I drove past flags at half-staff and billboards advertising adult entertainment and religious salvation, Amish cheese and the union of man and woman; others startled me, giving me pause from my listening (and serving as my unofficial entry into the exhibit, though I didn't realize it yet). Had I driven just a mile or so beyond the Art Academy of Cincinnati, I would have reached one of ... Read More

  • Purple, Black, and White: Querying Prince's Minnesota Roots
    • Abstract: The unexpected death of Prince Rogers Nelson, aka Prince, on April 21, 2016, broke hearts and unleashed waves of sadness, nostalgia, and creativity across the nation and the internet. No one was ready to speak of this edgy, fearless, transgressive musical genius in the past tense. Stricken with grief, his middle-aged Revolution bandmates launched an emotional reunion tour. His 1984 hit "Purple Rain" had a posthumous go-round, nding its way to the Billboard Hot 100 at number seventeen.1 In his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota—the actual location, give or take twenty miles, of his sound production studio and creative lair, Paisley Park2—the sudden absence of the Purple One brought a palpable shock that turned the ...

  • Richard Pryor's Peoria: Footnotes and Fandom
    • Abstract: Traditionally, biographers have done their research—rooted around in archives, conducted their interviews, sleuthed for missing puzzle pieces—and then streamlined that research to write the story of the person in question. For the sake of their readers, they often bury some of the messiness of what their research has dug up.It's so much easier for me to talk about my life in front of two thousand people than it is one-to-one. I'm a real defensive person, because if you were sensitive in my neighborhood you were something to eat.We may not be literate, but we visual than a motherfucker.The late Richard Pryor's (1940–2005) career spanned from the 1960s to his ascent into superstardom in the late 1970s and 1980s.

  • Disability in an Age of Fascism
    • Abstract: This is no longer a time of waiting. It is a time for the real work's urgencies. It is a time enhanced by an iron reclamation of what I call a burst of light—that inescapable knowledge, in the bone, of my own physical limitation.I would argue that disability justice is simply another term for love.Four years after the publication of The Cancer Journals (1980), self-described "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet" Audre Lorde received a diagnosis of liver cancer, "metastasized from the breast cancer for which [she] had had a mastectomy six years before."1 The 1988 essay "A Burst of Light: Living with Cancer" details the unfolding of her life thereafter, a record of navigating the medical-industrial complex and the ...

  • Black Women in Slavery and Freedom: Gendering the History of Racial
           Capitalism
    • Abstract: In recent years, a curious debate has emerged over proposals to amend the national currencies of the United States, England, and Canada by featuring prominent black women. In 2015, President Barack Obama announced his intention to substitute Harriet Tubman for Andrew Jackson on the twenty-dollar bill. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew set a deadline of 2020 for circulating the revised Tubman notes, but these lofty plans stalled following Donald Trump's 2016 election. Steven Mnuchin told Congress that Tubman would not make her debut until at least 2028, if at all.1 Trump's reluctance to print "politically correct" currency reflects broader white hostility to any displacement of white men from the pantheon of American ...

  • Race and Robots
    • Abstract: A neglected motivation behind the white supremacist terrorist attack in El Paso, Texas, on August 3, 2019, was the perpetrator's racialized anxieties about automation. The bleak future predicted in the killer's online manifesto reads like a scene from the dystopian film Elysium (2013): working-class whites will not be able to reap the benefits of the new automatic technologies because they will be overrun by poor, unemployed, government-dependent Latinxs. This is certainly not the future promised by today's dominant automation discourse, the business science fiction of the "second machine age" and "rise of the robots"; nor is it the future affirmed by "accelerationists" and other leftist thinkers who claim that ...

  • CFP: Politics of Language, Multilingualism, and Translation in American
           Studies: A Special Issue of American Quarterly (September 2021)
    • Abstract: We are calling for contributions for a special issue on the politics of language, multilingualism, and translation broadly understood in American studies. Our overarching question is what difference does linguistic difference make in our—whoever we are—understanding of what counts as American in American studies' While the dialectics of diversity have long been a key concern of the field, the same does not seem to have been the case with language. The polylingualism and the creolization of American speech and writing are rarely brought up. For the most part, doing American studies in the United States means doing it in, and on, English. Where graduate studies in other humanities and social science fields usually ... Read More
