Anatole Broyard's Human Stain: Performing Postracial Consciousness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Through examining the writing of Anatole Broyard (Roth's model for The Human Stain's Coleman Silk), the author argues that because Broyard refused to be classified, he offered Roth an opportunity to explore how racial identities can be surpassed; he allowed Roth to imagine a postracial consciousness where the limiting identitarian strictures that feed racism can be abolished.
