Aidoo, Lamonte, and Daniel F. Silva, editors. Lusophone African Short Stories and Poetry after Independence: Decolonial Destinies. Anthem Press, 2021.
For too long, debates in the field of Lusophone African studies tried to stay independent from the ideas of race or racism. Partly, this may have been a response to the fact that a great number of the prominent authors from Angola, Mozambique, or Cabo Verde were, and still are, doing their business within the Portuguese literary industry, both in material and affective terms: They publish their books in Portugal, with Portuguese publishers, and they sell them to a Portuguese audience—the kind of audience that had been instructed over the course of nearly five decades to make its self-image consistent with the New State claim that Portugal was historically a non-racist society.
