  • The Dollmaker's Misfortune
    • Abstract: The girl had really been something, but then she got left back, so she returned to the neighborhood to continue her daddy's work of making little wooden dolls and her mother's work of sewing their dresses and giving them a style.It had not been long since her daddy and mother had passed but she could not remember the man and the woman who used to be her folks. "More than likely," Izola told herself, "they were fine." They'd left 2,469 unfinished doll faces and doll bodies for her to assemble, clothe, and peddle. Izola liked to stand in the den drinking her coffee, her hair in a knot, gazing at the piles of limbs, torsos, and heads that reached the ceiling from parallel corners and spilled into the room. The dolls ... Read More

  • Edible Parts
    • Abstract: I never did listen too well. I had no time for wasteful conversation, and I didn't care about certain things that should've made me afraid. When I made up my mind, it was as good as made up, and if you tried to tell me different, I'd just lower my head and butt harder than before. Lawrence was more sensible—sometimes an appeaser, always a peacemaker. You could count on my brother to step through his options first; to think a thing through before making any move. In this way, he and I were nothing alike, but most times, my way proved to be the right one, and for that reason, Lawrence always listened to me.They would easily kill a slave for what we'd just done. We weren't slaves anymore, but every chance them ... Read More

  • Addiction
    • Abstract: Bear lived in the four-story shadow of another building. He in his bachelor years preferred driving after midnight, making grocery runs at the twenty-four hour market, walking the aisles unhurried and alone under the hum of fluorescent bulbs. He slept through the incessant blue-green blink of a sign advertising Vanille. Some nights he lay awake in vigil counting through ambient light the absent bodies of the constellations, each minor star too quiet to be seen. He idled in sentimental digressions of childhood—fantasies in which he simulated familiar applications of heat and breath and proximity, then breathless departure from enfolded arms, shivering nights alone, hunger. Between idyll and exile he held to these ... Read More

    • Abstract: Bodies, houses of scars, the places we have been: one day, dear heart, as your mother had been, rather than on the other side of this drawing you are going to be on the other side of a cleansing, cast down by stroke or fall or diabetic coma and left helpless in the hell of my heart; it could happen tomorrow today or next year—twenty centuries from now when you are vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle;1 and what rough beast would you find at the foot of your bed, waiting to give you your due, waiting with two plastic basins of water, one being solely water while the other would have in it a sudarium soon to be sainted by blood lymph and thumbprint and the mark of some tallow soap, formed from the suet of a ...

  • Necessary Apparitions: How Contemporary Poets of Color Embrace the
           Supernatural to Express Radical Vulnerability
    • Abstract: Hello sliding chairs. Hello vicious whispering shadows. I'm a reasonable man, but I want to be as inexplicable as something hanging a dozen feet in the air.Poets of color in the United States in the twenty-first century are increasingly crafting lyric subjectivities that embrace their othered selves as embodiments of the supernatural. The lines above, which conclude Terrance Hayes's poem "Black Confederate Ghost Story" reveal, in their desire to embody the supernatural—and in this case the inexplicable—a burgeoning aesthetic trend. The supernatural inexplicability towards which Hayes aspires imbues the poem's speaker with a ghostly, enigmatic ontology that simultaneously haunts—and lives—even as it suffers—and ... Read More

  • Black, Queer, and Precarious Visibilities: Simon Nkoli's Activist Image in
           South Africa's Exit Newspaper
    • Abstract: We must be visible if we are going to be liberated.In November 2015, Exit, South Africa's longest running monthly LGBT newspaper, published its 300th issue. As critic and activist Donna Smith asserts, in the context of pervasive uncertain and inconsistent publication of lesbian and gay print media in South Africa, founded in 1985, and still available in clubs and bookstores throughout the country, Exit has uniquely stood the test of time (189). Not surprisingly, Exit editors marked the milestone with a celebratory and confident tone. The issue's cover photo featuring a smiling, young, muscular, seemingly able-bodied white man, standing poolside with a dainty glass of beer raised outlines the aesthetic, embodied ... Read More

  • Poetry is Not a Country Club: Reflecting on "The Change"
    • Abstract: In the world of poetry, 2015 was a year of controversy. It seemed that nearly every month offered new evidence of the field's endemic racism. In March, Kenneth Goldsmith performed his conceptual poem "The Body of Michael Brown" at Brown University, reading from Michael Brown's autopsy report in a way that, according to Rin Johnson, "felt like Goldsmith physically took Michael Brown's body, chewed it up, and spat it out, exhibiting it for only the institutionally brightest minds to see." In June, outrage over Vanessa Place's "Gone With The Wind" project (in which she tweeted the novel's deeply racist text line-by-line using an image of the Black actress Hattie McDaniel as her avatar) led to her removal from the ...

  • Scripts of Blackness: Race, Cultural Nationalism, and U.S. Colonialism in
           Puerto Rico by Isar P. Godreau (review)
    • Abstract: Once a notion of a people gets ingrained into the collective consciousness, that is, gets written and talked about, fixed, and typecast, it more often than not sticks. As a Puerto Rican-born Egyptian, who has lived in the United States and other countries, I heard everything about Puerto Ricans from they don't wear shoes there, to spaghetti and trains haven't made it to that part of the world, from the typical Puerto Rican doesn't know the meaning of a hard day's work, to all Puerto Ricans are good for is collecting and spending welfare checks. I also heard Puerto Ricans are the happiest people on earth, so it hasn't been all bad, mainly. In regards to the pejorative remarks, it isn't a question of not bothering to ... Read More

  • On Racial Icons: Blackness and the Public Imagination by Nicole R.
           Fleetwood (review)
    • Abstract: Nicole R. Fleetwood's On Racial Icons: Blackness and the Public Imagination is a concise examination of the ways society and the media have iconized and vilified photographic representations of black Americans. Fleetwood's primary concern is with public interpretation of the "signifying" quality of racial images, and she questions the "representation currency" of these images in relation to historical documentation, and how they are perceived as means of understanding the current political, social, and cultural portrayals of minorities, specifically African Americans. As Fleetwood notes: "On Racial Icons is a meditation on how we—as a broad American public—fixate on certain images of race and nation, specifically ... Read More

  • Our Caribbean Kin: Race and Nation in the Neoliberal Antilles by Alaí
           Reyes-Santos (review)
    • Abstract: Much work has been done on the Caribbean and its relationship to the broader Diaspora. Our Caribbean Kin by Alaí Reyes-Santos expands notions of kinship, belonging, and Diaspora through her examination of solidarity and political alliance throughout the Hispanophone Caribbean. Divided into four chapters based on tropes of marriage, brotherhood, and family, Reyes-Santos sets out to understand and document moments where Haitians, Dominicans, and Puerto Ricans have come to imagine each other as kin, specifically throughout colonial, imperial, and neoliberal episodes of violence (2). Drawing from various archives, novels, and media, Reyes-Santos examines how these tropes get taken up in different social and political ... Read More

  • Hope Draped in Black: Race, Melancholy, and the Agony of Progress by
           Joseph R. Winters (review)
    • Abstract: Sayida Hartman's work on the afterlife of slavery—on the continuing way "black lives are still imperiled and devalued by a racial calculus and a political arithmetic that were entrenched centuries ago" (6)—has become a touchstone for a generation of scholars and critics. Ta-Nehisi Coates is one of them. As are prominent Afro-pessimist voices such as Frank Wilderson and Hortense Spillers. In their writings, the concept of "hope" receives rough treatment. Coates is moved, in effect, to renounce hope as a viable or recuperable category within black life: "I think a writer wedded to 'hope' is ultimately divorced from 'truth'" (Coates). Hope is, on Coates's read, an amnesiac that works wholly in the service to "the ... Read More

  • Long Past Slavery: Representing Race in the Federal Writers' Project by
           Catherine A. Stewart (review)
    • Abstract: In a brief period during the late 1930s, the Federal Writers' Project funded an extensive collection of ex-slave narratives, sending local residents out to interview formerly enslaved African Americans about their lives during slavery and after emancipation. The more than 2,300 interviews thus collected are invaluable primary source materials now digitalized and available via the Library of Congress website. In her book, Catherine Stewart carefully considers the competing forces that shaped these ex-slave narratives, focusing on the impact of administrative correspondence that stretched from federal directors in Washington, DC, to those making editorial decisions on the state level, and the local interviewers sent ...

  • Love and Narrative Form in Toni Morrison's Later Novels by Jean Wyatt
           (review)
    • Abstract: Nobel laureate Toni Morrison, in her 1989 essay "Unspeakable Things Unspoken," articulated her concern for the traumatic effects of racism on victims and perpetrators, citing the "severe fragmentation of the self" that she regretted was not of sufficient concern to psychiatry at that time (16). And extending her ideas in the 1993 Playing in the Dark, she identifies the extent of cultural pathologies about race in the representations of African Americans in canonical American fiction that illustrated and reiterated whites' identity fantasies about themselves and African Americans. The social, political, and economic realities for African Americans in America historically are significant contexts and triggers for her ... Read More

  • Arrival: Poems by Cheryl Boyce-Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: Question: How does a black woman arrive, into a new year, into a space, at a place' More questions: Is her arrival a destined or a desired place' Is her arrival uncompromised by life' Is her arrival burdened by any one thing or person' Does her arrival lead to her being liberated and free' Does her arrival guarantee peace of mind and love' What motivates her arrival and why'These questions undergird Cheryl Boyce-Taylor's newly published Arrival, a demanding and theoretically rich volume of poetry that finds its own powers (and perhaps perils) in movement and migration. In this way, there is nothing easy about these poems because their words and themes refuse containment. Nevertheless, without question—and without ... Read More

  • Byline, Richard Wright: Articles from the Daily Worker and New Masses by
           Richard Wright (review)
    • Abstract: Earle V. Bryant's Byline, Richard Wright: Articles from the Daily Worker and New Masses historically contextualizes Wright's journey as a journalist with several publications during the years he was associated with the US Communist Party. Bryant's critical book chronicles the celebrated writer's activism not through his well-known literary works, but through his lesser-known periodical pieces that were featured in publications such as the Daily Worker (1921–1958), New Masses (1926–1948), and New Challenge (1937).1 Byline presents a detailed roadmap of Wright's editorial passage through an America that is suffering due to the Great Depression. The critical text examines the historic events that Wright humanized in ... Read More
