  • James Alan McPherson Biographical Note & Bibliography
    • Abstract: James Alan McPherson September 16, 1943—July 27, 2016 Photograph courtesy of University of Iowa Foundation James Alan McPherson was born on September 16, 1943, in Savannah, Georgia, the second of four children. His father, James, Sr., was a master electrician; his mother, Mabel Small, was a domestic. After high school graduation he enrolled at Morris Brown College for his freshman year, attended Morgan State University for two years before returning to Morris Brown for his undergraduate degree in history and English in 1965. In 1968 McPherson received his LLB. degree from Harvard Law School. Three years later he received his MFA degree in creative writing from the ... Read More

  • Remembering McPherson
    • Abstract: I met James Alan McPherson only three or four times in person. Each was for the better part of a day or evening. Each was memorable. We were introduced in the late spring of 1968 by Alan Lebowitz, at the time a lecturer in English at Harvard University. As an undergraduate, I had studied under Mr. Lebowitz in an intermediate level fiction writing class; he was encouraging and kind enough to urge me to seek out an advanced writing class. Jim was finishing his degree at the law school and seeking mentoring in fiction writing. He had enrolled in an advanced writing course under Lebowitz during the fall semester, 1967. After the introductions outside a classroom, Jim promptly invited me to join him and a ... Read More

  • An Interview with James Alan McPherson
    • Abstract: This interview was conducted by telephone between Montgomery, Alabama, and Iowa City, Iowa, on December 15, 2007. When did you first read Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man' I must have read it in college. I was an English major. I went to black colleges—Morgan State in Baltimore and Morris Brown in Atlanta. Invisible Man opened up a broader world to me. I remember I used to work summers as a dining-car waiter for the Great Northern Railroad. They were segregated trains. When the trains would stop to change engines at Chattanooga, Tennessee, there would be a black man serving sandwiches and coffee and he would come on in the black coach and he would say, “We’re in the North now. Y’all can go up ... Read More

  • Excerpts from Interviews with James Alan McPherson
    • Abstract: For many years now, I have been working on putting together a collection of interviews about the life and work of Ralph Ellison, and my interview with James Alan McPherson is a part of that larger project. Since my interview with McPherson is short and focuses primarily on his relationship with Ralph Ellison, Charles Henry Rowell, the editor of Callaloo, has asked me to add a selection of excerpts from published interviews with McPherson. I have chosen three interviews in which he discusses a variety of subjects. By including the excerpts along with my interview, readers will hopefully gain a better understanding not only of James Alan McPherson the writer, but also of James Alan McPherson the man. ...

  • The Candor of Strangers
    • Abstract: Jonah barely lifts his voice to utter, “No,” his eyes to register my features, when I inquire, struggling to match his scissor-leg strides, if we’re acquainted—run-of-the-mill game to trade words &, fingers crossed, pocket change, perhaps first names for future Mission Street run-ins. He bites, so I play out some line, let this fish wear itself out. “Diaspora face,” he claims, crossing the Tragic Wand threshold where, inside, teens flip stools onto countertops, swab terracotta tiles—the Mr. Potato Head of African facial features; black folk swear they’ve met him in every city on every continent in whose streets he’s yet lost himself: Dove-breast-shaped cheekbones fringed with working man’s half-beard, mouth ...

  • Letter to Beryl Gilroy
    • Abstract: Dear Beryl Gilroy: In the late 1980s I argued that the separation of black from British, that hyphen on special status within the nation, was a ghetto for blacks based on what I had seen born here and growing up from my teens to adult life here: first that books written by black authors were grouped together and lumped in a corner whereas authors who were white and working in similar genres were given prominence in high shop windows; second, that the usefulness of separation in order to develop a critical voice without interruption from whites or qualification offered to them as participants was long past its expiration date; third, that the US model of separate and equal really meant separated in ...

  • Jamey Hatley: 2016 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award Winner
    • Abstract: 2016 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award Winner JAMEY HATLEY Hatley’s “Who’s Got the Body'” is a well-constructed scene, paced with knowing detail within the ever deepening stream of grief. There is much to capture the reader’s interest early on. The morticians are pillars of a community—dependable and professional. The episode suggests that the Harrises have buried many from that community, that the community members have shared in and witnessed each other’s grief. The descriptive details, especially tactile gesture and imagery, are effective: “a firm hand to the small of the back”; the air “crisp like a fall day”; “rubbed her wrist where her watch would rest if she had been wearing ...

  • Who’s Got the Body'
    • Abstract: “The Harrises will fix it,” Gladys Bobo said to anybody who would listen. “Let’s wait and see what the Harrises say.” And if anyone in Memphis could have righted the body, it would have been this family who had taken care of generations of Memphis’s colored dead. A family who knew the intricacies of death even better than the dead themselves. Theirs was the language of crisply folded programs, a firm hand to the small of the back, precise white gloves that could direct grief down a tight corridor or give it room to flower if need be. Theirs was the lonely, quiet work of washing naked bodies, the arrangement of limbs, the art of camouflaging the cruelty of life. While Wayfarer Homes waited for the ... Read More

  • Ladee Hubbard: 2016 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award Winner
    • Abstract: Photograph courtesy of Isa Yasmin-Gonzalez This novel excerpt nudges the reader into a site freighted with anxiety: the hospital emergency ward. The piece is carried along on the strength of a singular narrative voice. The descriptions effectively emphasize the dankness of the physical setting. A mother is desperate for the proper care for her ailing daughter. Interestingly, the encounters with apparent power informs the force of the piece. Clearly the trio of night nurses show contempt for the mother at the same time doubt is raised about their own competencies. The introduction of the husband reveals the fragmentation of a relationship and his waning power. The short narrative builds ... Read More

  • The Night Nurses
    • Abstract: It’s all better now and I know I am fortunate. But of course they wouldn’t just let us leave. Instead they made us sit there, in a dank hospital room with hideous green walls and fluorescent lights hovering beneath the low ceiling like depression. Until the doctor came in to do his rounds, some time around eleven. I’d been up since five when those three awful night nurses came to check my daughter’s vitals and then berated me for giving her apple juice. “Don’t you realize this is a laxative'” one of them said. A lumpy, middle-aged white woman with a mole sprouting hair hanging off her left cheek. I was so exhausted by then it was an effort just to keep my eyes open. I sat there ... Read More

  • Airea D. Matthews: 2016 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award Winner
    • Abstract: 2016 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award Winner Photograph courtesy of Haya Alfarhan AIREA D. MATTHEWS One way to read Airea D. Matthews’s simulacra—however protean in its formal strategies and multifarious in its entry-points to the restlessness that meaning mostly comes down to—is as a meditation on want, in at least two senses of the word. Want, as in desire, craving, be it for the body’s release or the differently unpredictable release that heroin offers; desire, too, to give shape and substance, in the form of language, to the abstraction of wanting. But also want, as in lack, and the ways in which our emptinesses—physical, emotional, psychological—drive us to fill them, to ... Read More

How do we get the fuck out of here' That’s not discussed, Dear. No one has ever tried. And watch your mouth! (sounds the note) (tunes to standard pitch) But what do we eat' We eat whatever he eats. We eat whatever we catch. (clutches her growling stomach) I’m starving. So is he. We all are, especially those outside. They’ll consume anything out there. Safer here.

For Williams, traditional and modern materials provide a language useful for illustrating transformations in social and cultural landscapes. He often includes Southern Hip-Hop motifs and African symbolism and artistic practices to create works reflective of human transformation, preservation, and deconstruction in the ... Read More

  • Line 1: Taped to the Wall of My Cell
    • Abstract: Digital rendering by Terrance Hayes As we study the life and lineage of a particular adult cell, we ask the same questions that a biographer asks of her subject: what were the critical decisions that defined the trajectory of this life, and when were they made' What was the contribution of neighbors, and what role was played by more distant influences' What was the role of chance' At what point was the final fate initially specified, and when was it ultimately sealed' In essence, we would like to understand the molecular biography of the cell. When I began collecting interviews and stories about Etheridge Knight more than a decade ago, I said, mostly to the few people I cornered for ... Read More

  • Line 2: Faces
    • Abstract: During the first weeks of my freshman year in college, I shared some of what looked like poems with my new English professor, Dr. John Thatcher French. It was the only way I could think of impressing him. My teammates—I was on a basketball scholarship—warned me he was a hard ass. He’d failed students for as little as a comma splice, they said. He’d been a naval intelligence officer during the Vietnam War, he was a horse trainer, a Faulkner scholar, a chain smoker, and lapsed Yankee. Dark haired and square jawed with an abrupt baritone, he had the look and bearing of R. Lee Ermey, the actor who played the infamous drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket. I don’t remember an especially enthusiastic response when I ... Read More

  • Harlem B&E
    • Abstract: The first time I heard a helicopter over my apartment I wondered, did bin Laden come back to life' The helo hovered over our brownstone near Lenox Avenue and I swore I could feel compression from the spinning blades. Other bodies had to feel this, too, on these blocks of brownstones, churches, and bodegas. Rapper Ice Cube included “no helicopter looking for a murder” as proof of a good South Central LA day. Maybe NYPD tracked a killer, but each flyover affected thousands of people in their homes. Did these war sounds agitate neighbors who’d survived armed conflict' I imagined a veteran terrorized as he waited for the helo to drop its load, or spray death in leaden waves. I returned to ...

  • The Twins of Salvation
    • Abstract: There comes a time in all our lives when we need a Drew “Bundini” Brown. See him in Muhammad Ali’s corner, chanting. (“You the greatest whoever was. You the onliest one.”) See him near tears when his angel has fallen from the blunt surprise of a wicked left hook. It doesn’t matter your rank or calling, your age or disposition. It is that voice near your ear, urging you to go on to a triumph or at least a prideful finale. You may have already decided to surrender and the raucous crowd of family and friends might have urged you to, but it is that voice, always there, seemingly ebbing and flowing like a bee’s attack, that urges you, just below a shout, to move on. You might have had a bad day on the job—at ... Read More

    • Abstract: Welcome to another installment of “Haiti in Translation”! I am so pleased to be contributing to this project. I first discovered “Haiti in Translation” this summer as I was preparing a rationale for my comprehensive exams concerning the circulation and reception of Haitian novels in the Anglophone-US American context. I am thrilled to share here my conversation with Professor Carrol F. Coates, a scholar of French and Francophone literature as well as the translator of celebrated authors such as Jacques Stephen Alexis, René Depestre, Assia Djebar, Mariama Barry, and Ahmadou Kourouma. Our discussion focuses on Coates’s translations of two of Jacques Stephen Alexis’s three novels: General Sun, My ... Read More

  • Trans-Atlantic Parochialism
    • Abstract: In the very principle of its constitution, in its language, and in its finalities, narrative about Africa is always pretext for a comment about something else, some other place, some other people. More precisely, Africa is the mediation that enables the West to accede to its own subconscious and give a public account of its subjectivity. In James Baldwin’s scandalous 1961 eulogy, “Alas, Poor Richard,” he seems to praise his deceased mentor, Richard Wright, with the most backhanded attack, observing that until the end, despite his world travels, Wright always remained the “Mississippi pickaninny” (148).1 Such a pronouncement could be chalked up to the bitter Oedipal rivalry that Baldwin seemed to engage ...

  • “Gone with the Ibos”: The Blueness of Blackness in Paule Marshall’s
           Praisesong for the Widow
    • Abstract: Now I have one radio-phonograph; I plan to have five. There is a certain acoustical deadness in my hole, and when I have music I want to feel its vibration, not only with my ear but with my whole body. I’d like to hear five recordings of Louis Armstrong playing and singing “What Did I Do to Be so Black and Blue”—all at the same time . . . Perhaps I like Louis Armstrong because he’s made poetry out of being invisible. I think it must be because he’s unaware that he is invisible. And my own grasp of invisibility aids me to understand his music. That’s salt water coming out of Louis’s spit valve, our faithful witness to the liquid residue of the music and the way it sounds. We forget this crude matter when ... Read More

  • Why 1964 Cairo Mattered in 1975 Oakland: Intercommunalism,
           Internationalism, and Reactionary Suicide in David Graham Du Bois’s
           ...And Bid Him Sing
    • Abstract: Long out of print and ignored by all but a handful of scholars, David Graham Du Bois’s 1975 novel ...And Bid Him Sing compels its readers to conceptualize black liberation outside discursive—temporal and spatial—frameworks that have traditionally defined our understanding of the era. Specifically, the text challenges the dominant history of the 1960s that defines Civil Rights, as Jeanne Theoharis phrases it, as “a nonviolent movement born in the South during the 1950s that emerged triumphant in the early 1960s but then was derailed by the twin forces of Black Power and white backlash when it sought to move North after 1965” (2). Instead, ...And Bid Him Sing demands that the reader connects the period at the ... Read More

  • The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead (review)
    • Abstract: When Cora, the protagonist of Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad boarded an escape train in antebellum Georgia, fleeing the only landscape she’d ever known, the Black conductor turned around and said: “Look outside as you speed through, and you’ll see the true face of America” (69). At first, Cora saw darkness. So much darkness. Until they arrived at the first stop: South Carolina. The underground railroad representative who met them, a white man named Sam, assured them the following: “You’re a long way from Georgia. South Carolina has a much more enlightened attitude toward colored advancement than the rest of the south. You’ll be safe until we can arrange the next leg of your trip.” And ... Read More

  • Stella: The Epic Saga of the Haitian Revolution by Adriana Umaña
           Hossman (review)
    • Abstract: Reading Émeric Bergeaud’s foundational epic Stella in October 2016 is an unsettling experience. Haiti’s first known novel, posthumously published in Paris in 1859, trades in the celebratory rhetoric of valiant battles, celestial bodies, and fertile landscapes. How different this country is from the version of Haiti that darkens contemporary headlines. In the wake of the 2010 earthquake, the cholera epidemic, and Hurricane Matthew, today’s fictive Haiti is far from heroic. Instead, it vacillates between two equally pernicious poles: that of perpetual victim (no report on Haiti seems to be complete without the tagline “poorest country in the Western hemisphere”) and wicked maker of its own misery (a phenomenon ...

  • Caribbean Spaces: Escapes from Twilight Zones by Carole Boyce Davies

    • Abstract: In Caribbean Spaces: Escapes from Twilight Zones, Carole Boyce Davies engages critical geography, autobiography, and the radical imaginary to analyze the ways women take, make, and shape Caribbean cultural cartographies. Davies goes beyond middle passage theorizations of diaspora to discuss the ways migration, transnationalism, home, and twilight zones create new cultural spaces and portable self-making practices. These concepts of transnational identity formation build on Davies previous books Black Women, Writing and Identity: Migrations of the Subject (1994) and Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones (2008) by adding to her ideas of migratory subjectivity, radical Black ...

  • Resisting Paradise: Tourism, Diaspora, and Sexuality in Caribbean Culture
           by Angelique Nixon (review)
    • Abstract: A short while ago, I was traveling to New Delhi from Goa. I had received Angelique Nixon’s Resisting Paradise: Tourism, Diaspora, and Sexuality in Caribbean Culture in the mail. As I was reading it on my return flight to Goa, where I live and work, I found myself seated next to a couple who were en route to India’s “beach paradise” for a short getaway. The monsoon was in full swing and Goa, the one state in the Indian union that relies almost exclusively on tourism for its state revenue, was in the “off-season” mode. Beaches are not the fun-filled spaces they are for most part of the year and the party scene is not too fetching. Goa makes do with monsoon trekking, a less economically profitable (but more ...

  • When the Devil Knocks: The Congo Tradition and the Politics of Blackness

    • Abstract: The last time I became violently ill was the night I dined with a devil and my mother-in-law. There is a place near my home in Bedford-Stuyvesant that opened in the midst of Central Brooklyn’s rejiggered demographics. It’s decorated like its neighboring brown-stones with high tin ceilings, darkly stained mahogany furnishings, and mismatched antique artifacts that evoke a person who’s lived a life. Just that afternoon, a copy of Renée Alexander Craft’s When the Devil Knocks: The Congo Tradition and the Politics of Blackness in Twentieth-Century Panama arrived at my doorstep for me to review for this journal. I sat with my Panamanian wife and our two sons and her mother with her mother’s companion ... Read More

  • Bound to Respect: Antebellum Narratives of Black Imprisonment, Servitude,

    • Abstract: In Bound to Respect, English Professor Keith Michael Green exposes the complex, messy, and often unpredictable system of bondage faced by African Americans in the early-nineteenth century through the prism of slave narratives. In five chapters, Bound to Respect conjures the labyrinthine cultural, commercial, and contextual transactions between servility and Southern bondspeople, free blacks, and the Atlantic creoles particularized in the scholarship of historians like Ira Berlin (see Generations of Captivity: A History of African-American Slaves). In his own words, Green characterizes his work as an “exploration of the many underappreciated forms of captivity [that] blacks experienced and recounted in the ... Read More

  • Freedom from Liberation: Slavery, Sentiment, and Literature in Cuba by
           Gerard Aching (review)
    • Abstract: At first glance, Gerard Aching’s title Freedom from Liberation appears to play upon denotative differences, differences negligible enough to render freedom and liberation synonyms. The words’ interchangeability obscures their difference until Aching’s introduction distinguishes between the monolithic idea of Freedom and diverse freedoms. Aching centers on the “interlocked yet competing struggles for freedom” (1) involving the nineteenth-century writer and former slave Juan Francisco Manzano’s autobiography, differentiating the psychological freedom which enslaved subjects unconsciously and routinely constructed from the abstract, Enlightenment-inspired visions of abolition held by external agents of freedom. ...

Because, yo, Time magazine and Jonathan Franzen, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but the award for “Great American Novelist” belongs on the bookshelf of the man who produced this verbal spectacle as the opening paragraph of his fourth novel: This may be hard to believe, coming from a black man, but I’ve never stolen anything. Never cheated on my taxes or at cards. Never snuck into the movies or failed to give back the extra change to a drugstore cashier indifferent to the ... Read More
