Description

‘A liberating and lacerating critique of American racial madness, capitalism and white superiority … Schuyler’s wild, misanthropic, take-no-prisoners satire of American life seems more relevant than ever … Afrofuturist before such a term existed’ New York Review of Books

Telling the extraordinary story of a mysterious process that can turn black skin white in 1930s America, Black No More is a pioneering and caustic work of Black speculative fiction from one of the great Harlem Renaissance authors.

‘A clever and biting satire’ Isabel Wilkerson, The New York Times Book Review

‘No one is safe from Schuyler’s biting mockery’ The New York Times

Publisher Review

A liberating and lacerating critique of American racial madness, capitalism, and white superiority . . . Black No More resists the push toward preaching and the urge toward looking backward into history. Afrofuturist before such a term existed, it insists, instead, on peering forward into what could come to be. * The New York Review of Books *
