Summary
"Voodoo Hypothesisis a subversion of the imperial construct of 'blackness' and a rejection of the contemporary and historical systems that paint black people as inferior, through constant parallel representations of 'evil' and 'savagery.' Pulling from pop culture, science, pseudo-science and contemporary news stories about race, Lubrin asks: What happens if the systems of belief that give science, religion and culture their importance were actually applied to the contemporary 'black experience'? With its irreverence toward colonialism, and the related obsession with post-colonialism and anti-colonialism, and her wide-ranging lines, deftly touched with an intermingling of Caribbean Creole, English patois and baroque language, Lubrin has created a book that holds up a torch to the narratives of the ruling class, and shows us the restorative possibilities that exist in language itself." -- Provided by publisher
