Description

This book explores the relations among blackness, antiblackness, and Black people within the critical discourse of the blackness of black. In addition to Saidiya Hartman's axial concept of the "afterlife of slavery," the book explores Frank Wilderson's "Afropessimism," Fred Moten's "generative blackness," and Calvin Warren's "black nihilism."
