Scholars
of US and transatlantic slavery have mostly overlooked or brushed aside accusations that
Black american citizens have been cannibalized. Vincent Woodard takes the enslaved
person’s claims of human intake heavily, concentrating on either the literal
starvation of the slave and the tropes of cannibalism at the a part of the
slaveholder, and additional attracts consciousness to the ways that Blacks
experienced their intake as a essentially homoerotic prevalence. The
Delectable Negro
explores those connections among homoeroticism,
cannibalism, and cultures of intake within the context of yank literature
and US slave tradition.

Utilizing many staples of African American literature and tradition, such
as the slave narratives of OlaudahEquiano, Harriet Jacobs, and Frederick Douglass, in addition to different less
circulated fabrics like James L. Smith’s slave narrative, runaway slave
advertisements, and various articles from Black newspapers released in the
nineteenth century, Woodard lines the racial assumptions, political
aspirations, gender codes, and philosophical frameworks that dictated either European
and white American arousal in the direction of Black men and starvation for Black male flesh.
Woodard makes use of those texts to unpack how slaves struggled not just against
social intake, but additionally opposed to endemic mechanisms of hunger and
hunger designed to wreck them. He concludes with an exam of the
controversial chain gang oral intercourse scene in Toni Morrison’s Beloved,
suggesting that even on the finish of the 20th and starting of the
twenty-first century, we're nonetheless at a loss for language with which to
describe Black male starvation inside a plantation tradition of consumption.
