Black not more
(1931), George S. Schuyler’s wildly creative masterpiece, starts off with a premise out of pulp-era speculative fiction. What might occur in the US if race, via the “strange and beautiful workings of science,” have been without warning not a hard and fast or significant classification? within the carnivalesque mayhem that ensues as hundreds of thousands suffer Crookman’s approach and the outdated racial order is upended, Schuyler spares not anyone, mocking Klansmen and “race” males alike and reveling within the myriad absurdities of the nation’s racial obsession. by way of turns hilarious and (in an unforgettable lynching scene) completely surprising, Black No More is Afrofuturist satire of the top order––a sui generis Harlem Renaissance tour-de-force.
