This chapter offers a snapshot of the current state of African American satire and muses on the possible directions it may take in the future. Using Trey Ellis’s formulation of the New Black Aesthetic as its touchstone, this chapter not only articulates how the New Black Aesthetic characterizes contemporary African American fiction, but also how its blindspot with respect to class issues. This chapter concludes that satire by its very nature disturbs the status quo, and there is no reason to doubt that it will continue to do so.
