Comprises nine essays, several expanded from appearances elsewhere, in which Gordon considers an area of thought that focuses on theoretical questions raised by struggles over ideas in African cultures and their hybrid and creolized forms in Europe and the Americas. Among the topics are a problem of biography in Africana thought, mixed race in light of whiteness and shadows of blackness, whether men can worship, recent Africana religious thought, existential borders of anonymity and superfluous invisibility, and words and incantations.
