  • Neo-Slave Narrative Texts
    • Abstract: From the very beginning, when Joan Anim-Addo first asked to guest edit a special issue of Callaloo on the neo-slave narrative, I was not only impressed, I was very pleased—overjoyed is a more appropriate description—that I was not alone in realizing that there had too long been a lacuna in African Diaspora literary criticism dealing with the phenomenon of slave narratives, over one-hundred of which were created by enslaved African Americans from the seventeenth through the nineteenth century. Overjoyed, too, for here is a Black British scholar, university professor, director of Caribbean Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London—Joan Anim-Addo, who is herself an impressive practicing creative writer making such a ...

  • The Power of the Neo-Slave Narrative Genre
    • Abstract: One of the many reasons and necessities for the mass movements of peoples, war leads them all. It is estimated that when the final numbers of the displaced come out—those running from persecution, conflict, and generalized violence in today's world (including refugees, asylum seekers, and internally displaced persons)—the number will far surpass sixty million. Sixty million. And half of all refugees are children. I don't know the number of the dead.Do the slave narratives in fact represent a distinct literary genre' If not, why not' If so, what are its distinguishing characteristics' Are these characteristics relatively uniform throughout its history' What are the sources of variation and change' Is change great or ...

  • Photographing A Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby: Kara Walker's Take
           on the Neo-Slave Narrative
    • Abstract: The photograph is violent: not because it shows violent things, but because on each occasion it fills the sight by force, and because in it nothing can be refused or transformed (that we sometimes call it mild does not contradict its violence: many say that sugar is mild but to me sugar is violent, and I call it so.)That is part of an ongoing debate about black creativity, through the 20th and now the 21st century. It's, "Who is looking'" And it's always been the same answer for the most part. How do people look' How are people supposed to look' Are white audiences looking at it in the right way' And are black audiences looking to see this piece' And, of course, my question is: What is the right way to look at a ...

  • "An Insinuating Voice": Angelo Herndon and the Invisible Genesis of the
           Radical Prison Slave's Neo-Slave Narrative
    • Abstract: You may do what you will with Angelo Herndon. You may indict him. You may put him in jail. But there will come other thousands of Angelo Herndons. If you really want to do anything about this case, you must indict the social system. But this you will not do, for your role is to defend the system under which the toiling masses are robbed and oppressed. You may succeed in killing one, two, even a score of working-class organizers. But you cannot kill the working class.My ancestors were chattel slaves and the memory of their tribulations gnawed at my spirit like an unhealing wound.Composed during the middle of the Great Depression, Angelo Herndon's Black radical prison autobiography Let Me Live represents a searing ...

  • The Restored Literary Behaviors of Neo-Slave Narratives: Troubling the
           Ethics of Witnessing in the Excessive Present
    • Abstract: Reader, be assured this narrative is no fiction.When I'm telling you something don't you ever ask if I'm lying. Because they didn't want to leave no evidence of what they done—so it couldn't be used against them. And I'm leaving evidence. And you got to leave evidence too. And you children got to leave evidence. And when it come time to hold up the evidence, we got to have evidence to hold up.Early in Gayl Jones's 1975 novel Corregidora, the protagonist Ursa remembers her Great Gram's charge to her descendants, a charge which is instructional for reading the neo-slave narrative genre. Great Gram signifies on the convention by which antebellum slave narratives' authors (and those who wrote their paratextual ... Read More

  • Touching the Past: The Inscription of Trauma and Affect in Francophone
           Neo-Slave Narratives
    • Abstract: Time hath, my lord, a wallet at his back, wherein he puts alms for oblivion.The trauma of slavery and its emotional impact, or affect, on the lives of enslaved Africans in the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean have remained "tongueless whisperings" for many centuries. Few alms have been preserved in time's wallet so that later generations could understand what their enslaved ancestors lived through; what we do have are in the form of the so-called "slave narratives," an account of slave life, written by former slaves—The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vassa, the African is often cited—or transcribed by an amanuensis (European), as in the case of Mary Prince's The History of ...

  • Counter-Memory and the Archival turn in Dorothea Smartt's Ship Shape
    • Abstract: Caribbean literature's longstanding tradition of historical representation has continued with strength through the contemporary moment. Many Caribbean literary texts of the 1990s and 2000s are characterized by a critical engagement with the memorialization of slavery in the Caribbean. From fiction, poetry, and essay writing, authors like Dionne Brand, M. NourbeSe Philip, Fred D'Aguiar, Maryse Condé, and Patrick Chamoiseau, among others, have re-imagined the experience of slavery as a counterpoint to the little that we know about the history of the slave trade from the perspective of the enslaved populations. Within this literary and critical focus, some authors have also opted to include and contextualize fragments ... Read More

  • Breaking Historical Silence: Emotional Wealth in Joan Anim-Addo's
           "Daughter and His Housekeeper" and Andrea Levy' The Long Song
    • Abstract: Fiction has often proved a fruitful means of bringing to life words persistently left unrecorded in official historical accounts. In the specific context of Black British literature, recovering lost stories has been a main thematic concern. As Paul Gilroy argues in his seminal work The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness, the telling and retelling of stories of loss, exile, and migration have been central elements in the memory of black people that have served to "invent, maintain and renew identity" and, therefore, constitute a collective, shared cultural identity (198). Moreover, for Gilroy, returning to slavery through the imaginative possibilities of fiction has offered black authors "a means to ... Read More

  • Visual Artist
    • Abstract: Lubaina Himid's identities include being a black British woman born in Zanzibar, a visual artist, an academic, a cultural activist, a curator, and since December 2017, a Turner Prize winner. As principal researcher leading the project, "Making Histories Visible," Himid underscores the "gaps in history that are not being filled" and as she pointedly states, "I only know how to paint." Certainly with Turner Prize recognition, her skilled and nuanced painting has finally been recognized and awarded within the British art scene and internationally. What is perhaps less well known is the work that Himid has consistently undertaken since the 1980s to support other black artists. Himid's "Making Histories Visible" ... Read More

  • The Voice, The Body, and "Letting it all Fly": Neo-Slave Narratives and
           the Discursive Framing of Urban America
    • Abstract: This essay explores the role of voice and embodiment in the claim to citizenship made in contemporary narratives addressing conditions of state surveillance in urban America. I discuss Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father (1995), hip hop/spoken word piece "Return to Innocence Lost" (1999) by The Roots featuring Ursula Rucker, and Louis Theroux's television documentary Law and Disorder in Philadelphia (2008). I read these texts as contemporary variants upon the neo-slave narrative. Each of these texts makes acute commentary upon conditions of state surveillance and the policing of the black body in ways that bear comparison with the practice of narrative "framing" that historically formed the site of the slave ...

  • The Black Atlantic Revisited: Ana Maria Gonçalves's Um defeito de cor
    • Abstract: Paul Gilroy's legendary work of cultural theory The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double-Consciousness (1993), which still dominates diaspora studies, is not enough to tackle the complexity of Afro-Brazilian Ana Maria Gonçalves's neo-slave narrative Um defeito de cor [A Color Defect] (2006).1 On one hand, Gonçalves's saga reaffirms some of Gilroy's claims regarding double-consciousness (being a hybrid of Western "values," "subjectivity," and "reason" along with discourses excluded from the projects that created these concepts). On the other hand, the novel's breadth and complexity go beyond Gilroy's Anglocentric approach by focusing on Brazilian slavery from a woman's point of view. It creates a more dynamic ... Read More

  • Humor as Deconstructive Apparatus in Bernardine Evaristo's Blonde Roots
    • Abstract: What I want people to focus on is the idea that if the table were turned historically and Africans had enslaved Europeans, what would that mean in terms of how we a) view that history and b) understand notions of civilization and savagery. Hopefully this parallel universe gives readers a modern and historical context through which to reexamine this issue.In her 2008 interview with Lane Ashfeldt discussing her neo-slave narrative Blonde Roots, author Bernardine Evaristo makes her intentions clear. Readers are situated in what she describes as a "parallel universe" in which Africans, as the slavers, perform the atrocities of transatlantic slavery—from the horrors of capture and bondage, to the racist ideological ...

  • Flights of Principled Fancy Dress: Steve Prince's Katrina Suite and the
           Neo-Slave Narrative
    • Abstract: Wakes are processes; through them we think about the dead and about our relations to them; they are rituals through which to enact grief and memory. Wakes allow those among the living to mourn the passing of the dead through ritual; they are the watching of relatives and friends beside the body of the deceased from death to burial and the accompanying drinking, feasting, and other observances; a watching practiced as a religious observance. But wakes are also "the track left on the water's surface by a ship; the disturbance caused by a body swimming, or one that is moved, in water; the air currents behind a body in flight; a region of disturbed flow; in the line of sight of (an observed object); and (something) in ...

  • Affirmations of Flesh: Toni Morrison's Gaze into the Human
    • Abstract: I prefer to think of a-world-in-which-race-does-not-matter as something other than a theme park, or a failed and always-failing dream or as the father's house of many rooms. I am thinking of it as home. "Home" seems a suitable term because, first, it lets me make a radical distinction between the metaphor of house and the metaphor of home and helps me clarify my thoughts on racial construction. Second, the term domesticates the racial project, moves the job of unmattering race away from pathetic yearning and futile desire; away from an impossible future or an irretrievable and probably nonexistent Eden to a manageable, doable, modern human activity. Third, because eliminating the potency of racist constructs in ... Read More

  • Do outro lado by Fraga, César, and Maurício Barros de Castro
           (review)
    • Abstract: I have never before seen a cemetery so full of life. In 2013, Brazilian photographer César Fraga and historian Maurício Barros de Castro traveled Africa, visiting "places of memory" that commemorate the history of slavery, the tombstones of the trans-Atlantic trade that created Brazil, and the New World, as we know them. This is Fraga's eighth book of photos, following Empurrando água (2014) on Brazil's ports and Gigante vermelho (in press) on marine research in the southern tip of South America. In Do outro lado, his photos are full of movement and color, even as they depict the chains that purportedly bound captives to one another, or the patio where women were kept like livestock until a governor picked one for ...
