As the number of mixed-race people grows in the United States, writers and artists are challenging assumptions about identity. These images and narratives are not just entertaining, said Ms. Elam, who is also the author of The Souls of Mixed Folk: Race, Politics and Aesthetics in the New Millennium. They can influence, both consciously and unconsciously, how we think about race today in our nation. In much the same way, half-breeds and tragic mulatto characters, created mostly by white artists, instructed past generations on the perils of transgressing racial boundaries. To be sure, the representation of mixed-race artists is uneven.

The Souls of Mixed Folk examines representations of mixed race in literature and the arts that redefine new millennial aesthetics and politics. Focusing on black-white mixes, Elam analyzes expressive works―novels, drama, graphic narrative, late-night television, art installations―as artistic rejoinders to the perception that post-Civil Rights politics are bereft and post-Black art is apolitical. Reorienting attention to the cultural invention of mixed race from the social sciences to the humanities, Elam considers the creative work of Lezley Saar, Aaron McGruder, Nate Creekmore, Danzy Senna, Colson Whitehead, Emily Raboteau, Carl Hancock Rux, and Dave Chappelle. All these writers and artists address mixed race as both an aesthetic challenge and a social concern, and together, they gesture toward a poetics of social justice for the "mulatto millennium."

The Souls of Mixed Folk seeks a middle way between competing hagiographic and apocalyptic impulses in mixed race scholarship, between those who proselytize mixed race as the great hallelujah to the "race problem" and those who can only hear the alarmist bells of civil rights destruction. Both approaches can obscure some of the more critically astute engagements with new millennial iterations of mixed race by the multi-generic cohort of contemporary writers, artists, and performers discussed in this book. The Souls of Mixed Folk offers case studies of their creative work in an effort to expand the contemporary idiom about mixed race in the so-called post-race moment, asking how might new millennial expressive forms suggest an aesthetics of mixed race? And how might such an aesthetics productively reimagine the relations between race, art, and social equity in the twenty-first century?

This is a very important book. If the cover makes you uncomfortable, then maybe actually read it. Ignore the other astoundingly idiotic rating.

Awesome and important book on everything from literature to film to political culture.
