This chapter compares two depictions of Harlem, John Killen’s The Cotillion and Mat Johnson’s Hunting in Harlem. The latter novel criticizes the Afrocentric Ideology embraced by the former. Although both novels employ satire as a means of social critique, their comparison demonstrates the change in attitude and ideology of the Post-Soul generation from that embodied by the Civil Rights generation.

Keywords:   Harlem, Afrocentric, John Killens, Mat Johnson, Post-Soul
