Abstract:

"Robert J. Patterson and his contributors interrogate how African American writers and cultural producers use black modes of cultural expressivity to engage, make, and change history in order to imagine the future and to provide alternate ways of thinking, existing, and being for black subjects in particular, and American citizens in general, in the midst of this historical paradox. This volume insists that black cultural production during the 1970s anchors the philosophical, aesthetic, and political debates that animate contemporary debates in African American studies, and insists that, despite abject social and political conditions, black cultural production keeps imagining black thriving. Simultaneously, it demonstrates the specific ways that the cultural production itself re(imagines) ways to transform that which prevents black thriving. Thus, the volume argues that African American cultural production continues to engage in social critique and transformation and remains an important site for the (re)making of black politics"--.
