The Local and the Global

The Local and the Global

BLKARTSOUTH and Callaloo

(p.107) 4 The Local and the Global
Black Post-Blackness

University of Illinois Press

The fourth chapter analyzes BLKARTSOUTH (the leading collective of the Black Arts Movement in the South). Crawford focuses on Nkombo journal produced by BLKARTSOUTH. She argues that the practice of the local and the global in NKOMBO prepared the way for the practice of diaspora and the local in Callaloo, the most prominent journal in current African diasporic literary and cultural studies. This chapter shows how editorial practices during both the Black Arts Movement and the 21st century pivot on making the local and the global inseparable in a manner that parallels the inseparability of blackness and post-blackness.

Keywords:   BLKARTSOUTH, Nkombo, Callaloo, editorial practices, diaspora
