Afro-Fabulation and the Fictions of Ethnicity
This chapter engages recent developments in black feminist theory, in particular those that emphasize the pornotroping of the flesh, in order to outline a new theory of fictive ethnicity. Noting how black ethnicity has emerged as an issue in film and performance, the chapter suggests that a fabulation of ethnicity (as well as race) is critical to an understanding of angular socialities in the contemporary African diaspora.
