Synopsis of Black Identity: Rhetoric, Ideology, and Nineteenth-Century Black Nationalism

Gordon (communication, theater arts, African American studies, U. of Puget Sound) explores the early rhetorical formation and functioning of the ideology of black nationalism in the U.S. Coverage includes theories about rhetoric, race, and alienation, and the problems these concepts create; oppression in antebellum America, and the rhetorical means used by Anglo-Americans to defend slavery; an examination of the foundation documents of black nationalism; the contestation over blackness as evidenced in the Whipper-Sidney debate of 1840-41; the efforts of black abolitionists toward self-definition and self-determination; and the implications of the study for rhetorical theory and for an understanding of black nationalism.
