Dark Matter: Black Literature in the 20th Century

We live in the "afterlife of slavery," an age in which Black lives remain terrorized by slavery's specter. Reading works by Cornelius Eady, Dionne Brand, Toni Morrison, Ralph Ellison, Richard Wright, and others, this course examines how 20th century African-American writing and thinking about blackness struggle within and against a world haunted by the afterlife of slavery.
