Racial Worldmaking

Mark C. Jerng

Fordham University Press

This conclusion synthesizes the main analyses of the book and explores its implications for transforming our conventional ideas about the literary and historical foundations of race and racism. It then analyzes the work of W.E.B. DuBois for the way in which he navigates genre, race, and world in several of his works including Black Reconstruction, “The Comet,” and Worlds of Color. In DuBois, this conclusion finds the possibilities of an anti-racist racial worldmaking.

Keywords:   Black Reconstruction, Comet, The, DuBois, W.E.B., Genre, Race in literature, Racism in literature, Worlds of Color
