Focusing at the paintings of black, diasporic writers in Canada, relatively Dionne model, Austin Clarke, and Tessa McWatt, Blackening Canada investigates the way during which literature can remodel conceptions of kingdom and diaspora. via a attention of literary illustration, public discourse, and the language of political protest, Paul Barrett argues that Canadian multiculturalism uniquely permits black diasporic writers to remodel nationwide literature and id. those writers grab upon the ambiguities and tensions inside Canadian discourses of kingdom to rewrite the kingdom from a black, diasporic point of view, changing exclusion from the nationwide discourse into the impetus for his or her artistic endeavours.
Within this context, Barrett indicates, debates over who counts as Canadian, the bounds of tolerance, and the breaking issues of Canadian multiculturalism serve no longer as symptoms of multiculturalism’s failure yet as facts of either its power and of the original demanding situations that black writing in Canada poses to multicultural politics and the state itself.
