By Reiland Rabaka

The Negritude Movement presents readers with not just an highbrow background of the Negritude stream but in addition its prehistory (W.E.B. Du Bois, the hot Negro circulation, and the Harlem Renaissance) and its posthistory (Frantz Fanon and the evolution of Fanonism). via viewing Negritude as an “insurgent inspiration” (to invoke this book’s deliberately incendiary subtitle), in place of only a sort of poetics and aesthetics, The Negritude Movement explores Negritude as a “traveling thought” (à los angeles Edward Said’s inspiration) that always crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean within the 20th century: from Harlem to Haiti, Haiti to Paris, Paris to Martinique, Martinique to Senegal, and on and on ad infinitum. The Negritude Movement maps the hobbies of proto-Negritude suggestions from Du Bois’s discourse in The Souls of Black Folk via to post-Negritude techniques in Fanon’s Black epidermis, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth. using Negritude as a conceptual framework to, at the one hand, discover the Africana highbrow culture within the 20th century, and, nevertheless, display discursive continuity among Du Bois and Fanon, in addition to the Harlem Renaissance and Negritude move, The Negritude Movement eventually accents what Negritude contributed to arguably its maximum highbrow inheritor, Frantz Fanon, and the improvement of his unique severe thought, Fanonism. Rabaka argues that if Fanon and Fanonism stay proper within the twenty-first century, then, to a definite volume, Negritude continues to be correct within the twenty-first century.
