Black, White, and in Color: Essays on American Literature and Culture

Spillers, Hortense J. (Fellow, 1991-92)

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2022

From the publisher's description:

Black, White, and in Color offers a long-awaited collection of major essays by Hortense Spillers, one of the most influential and inspiring black critics of the past twenty years. Spanning her work from the early 1980s, in which she pioneered a broadly poststructuralist approach to African American literature, and extending through her turn to cultural studies in the 1990s, these essays display her passionate commitment to reading as a fundamentally political act-one pivotal to rewriting the humanist project.
