About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Rajé, A Superhero: The Beginning of a Bold New Era by Cox, Renée.

Description:

Octavo. Unpaginated (20pp). Original stiff wrappers. Remarkable photographic work in which "Rajé, the superhero rescues the racial archetypes of Aunt Jemina and Uncle Ben from their respective perches on the covers of pancake and rice boxes. Rajé then commutes them from plump middle-aged matron and kindly elder into lean, swimmingsuit-clad icons of beauty and prowess. Sporting black patent leather clothing and boots, Rajé and her female companion exude the sexual power and control that is associated with the character of a dominatrix and that decisively sabotages the docility associated with the black servant. " (Farrington 223) Cox reappropriates such racial stereotypes and difficult historical facts by means of an intertextual role-play, characterized by aggressive humor and theatricality, to underline their political significance.
