A Legacy of Radical Differences
Blackness, the sixties, and the transnational left are three overlapping registers through which this book traces the radical possibilities of performance. Defining each of these and their collusions, the introduction outlines the ways each of these conditions pressures the others, and ways to understand their coordination as a site of excessive, transgressive action. Attention is paid to both Marxist histories and the travels of W.E.B. Du Bois and Josephine Baker as innovators of a black transnational sphere. The subjects of the following chapters are introduced in relation to this legacy.
