About the Author
KEVIN QUASHIE is an associate professor of Afro-American studies at Smith College. He is the author of Black Women, Identity, and Cultural Theory: (Un)Becoming the Subject (Rutgers University Press).
"With fluid and beautiful prose, Quashie's book not only offers readers another way to think about African American selfhood, but also other ways to approach the very act of reading itself."--Emily Bernard "author of Carl Van Vechten and the Harlem Renaissance "
"Quashie challenges the general assumption that African American commentary is expressed in loud voices as he studies the often-overlooked internal conflicts of 'black culture'. His intertwining of both factual and fictional situations provides a brilliant and intriguiging insight that ultimately suggests an overwhelming gentle message about African American protest and resistance.
