In Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?, Touré explores the fluid definitions of blackness in contemporary African American culture. These definitions are read against his earlier fiction, where he portrays the varieties of blackness through the character of the Black Widow, through which he explores notions of racial authenticity.
