NEW: Transition Magazine 108
In Transition 108, our authors take "the long view from the levee" and survey the muddy flow of African/American history. From the banks of the Mississippi to the back roads of Ivory Coast, manmade dams and barricades block access to our homelands.
But the past has a way of leaking through: West African aesthetic forms in the work of an American sculptor, old soul food joints in the New Newark, the scars of racism in contemporary Cuban art, and the sweet sound of the Gospel Train replaced by Soul Train, a form of secular testifying that taught us to moonwalk down the line.
