W. E. B. Du Bois Lecture

Priscilla Layne

(University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

The (Im)possibility and Necessity of Hope: Afrofuturism and Diasporic Intertextuality in Olumide Popoola’s Also By Mail

 

Dr. Layne will present from the first chapter of her current book project on Afro-German Afrofuturism. In the talk she uses an Afrofuturist lens to interpret Olumide Popoola’s play Also by Mail (2013). Set in both Nigeria and Germany, the play centers around the Afro-German siblings Wale and Funke, who travel to Nigeria to attend the funeral of their recently deceased father. Their presence in Nigeria stirs up numerous conflicts. Having grown up in Germany with a white mother, the siblings are repeatedly othered by their Nigerian relatives. While they don’t identify with Germany as theirs due to the racial discrimination they have experienced there, they don’t quite feel at home in Nigeria either. Fantasy enters the text through Funke, whose battle with a case of Malaria brings on a fever that either facilitates a meeting or creates the fantasy of a meeting with her dead father who comes to share some wisdom with her from beyond the grave. In this talk, Layne argues that Popoola incorporates both Afrofuturist thought and Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun to argue for the necessity of hope for a better future even in the absence of teleological determination.
