Afromodernisms – Black Modernist Practice in Contemporary Context
This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to suggest the place of black experience and its expressive forms at the centre of modernism by exploring the productive crossroads between nationalism and internationalism, gender and sexuality, and the aesthetic politics and politicised aesthetics of black artistry. The book also points to Afromodernisms as a plurality of aesthetic responses to the extraordinary nature of black experience. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
