Obama In­her­i­tance: Fif­teen Sto­ries of Con­spir­acy Noir

Newsweek International - - CULTURE - —Ryan Bort

Edited by Gary Phillips, THREE ROOMS PRESS

Writ­ers take on the racist back­lash against Pres­i­dent Barack Obama in gen­res as di­verse as spy thrillers, noir mys­ter­ies and sci­ence fic­tion. For ex­am­ple, Wal­ter Mosley’s “A Dif­fer­ent Frame of Ref­er­ence,” set in the South, ex­plores a se­cret so­ci­ety of white su­prem­a­cists plant­ing news sto­ries and en­forc­ing ra­cial fear in their com­mu­ni­ties. In other words, still rel­e­vant!
