Frieda Ekotto is the Chair of the Department of Afro-American and African Studies at the University of Michigan. She is the author of several important scholarly articles, monographs and novels, which address questions of race, colonialism and slavery in the Francophone world. She has also focused on postcolonial feminisms from an African perspective and is currently working on a manuscript “Vibrancy of Silence: Women Loving Women in Sub-Sahara Africa.” Her latest monograph, What Color is Black: Race and Sex Across the French Atlantic, represents a groundbreaking intervention in the field of critical race studies. Her lecture will focus on the Negritude movement and discourses about blackness in the Francophone Atlantic world.
