Check out Professor Brian Bantum’s recent review of Michelle Elam’s “Souls of Mixed Folk: Race, Politics, and Aesthetics in the New Millennium.”
Featured in the online edition of “ARTS” (volume 26, number 2), Dr. Bantum describes Elam’s analysis as “brilliant,” and notes that she “offers an important critique of the emerging field of critical mixed-race studies and the consumer niche regarding Black mixed-race identity.” And “most critically, Elam highlights the critical illusion at the heart of so many mixed-race rhetorics: a post-racial fallacy of de-historicity that is grounded in a ‘peculiarly late-capitalist consumerist response to the political murkiness of racial difference’ (1).”
