Staging Habla de Negros In this volume, Nicholas R Jones analyzes white appropriations of black African voices in Spanish theater from the 1500s through the 1700s, when the performance of Africanized Castilian, commonly referred to as habla de negros black speech , was in vogue.Focusing on Spanish Golden Age theater and performative poetry from authors such as Calder n de la Barca, Lope de Rueda, and Rodrigo de Reinosa, Jones makes a strong case for revising the belief, long held by literary critics and linguists, that white appropriations and representations of habla de negros language are racist buffoonery or stereotype Instead, Jones shows black characters who laugh, sing, and shout, ultimately combating the violent desire of white supremacy By placing early modern Iberia in conversation with discourses on African diasporic studies, Jones showcases how black Africans and their descendants who built communities in early modern Spain were rendered legible in performative literary texts.Accessibly written and theoretically sophisticated, Jones s groundbreaking study elucidates the ways that habla de negros animated black Africans agency, empowered their resistance, and highlighted their African cultural retentions This must read book on identity building, performance, and race will captivate audiences across disciplines.
