  • Mô tả: From the mid- to late twentieth century and beyond, African American "families of choice"-intimate associations of biological and nonblood relatives cohabiting and sharing household responsibilities-have been a primary mode of collectivity that has challenged the hegemony of the heterosexual nuclear family. "What Child is This" examines two cultural depictions of African American "families of choice" in order to challenge two modes of white sexual normativity. First, the author's reading of the "other-mothering" and "exchange relationships" represented in the autobiographical telefilm "Lackawanna Blues" challenges white hetero-normative logic that black conformity to the nuclear family will resolve racialized economic and social gaps. Second, his reading of same-sex couple parenting in the series "Noah's Arc" is a rejoinder to "queer negativity," a white homo-normative strain of queer theory opposed to various forms of sociality but lacking critical attention to the historically subversive role of alternative kinship structures for African Americans.
