Place and the Cultural Politics of the Republic of New Afrika

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Paul Karolczyk uses the significance of place in the nation-building practices of the RNA to argue that place is central to reifying and naturalizing the ideologies and identities of social movements and individuals engaged in everyday forms of resistance. The RNA’s cultural politics show that place is inseparable from the construction of their ideology and identity. This is most visible in the RNA’s frequent use of the place of Africa in its political discourse, as well as in its creation of “New Afrikan” places. One such place is “the Kush District” (the Mississippi Delta) where the RNA anticipates hosting a successful black plebiscite. The cultural politics of renaming that region challenges the Delta’s conventional identities by associating it with the ancient Nile Valley kingdom and the RNA’s vision of an independent nation-state. It is fundamental to constructing national identity, political organizing, memorializing struggle, building territoriality, and challenging American society’s dominant powers. Critically examining place can lead to a fuller understanding of how power is established, maintained, and challenged by social struggle.
