> In Beloved--- when considering the occasion that Lady Jones greets Denver, her former student--- Toni Morrison describes what the teacher sees: “Heavy eyebrows, thick baby lashes and the unmistakable love call that shimmered around children until they learned better” (246).
> “Until They Learned Better”: Calling Black Boys to Shimmering Consciousness in All American Boys explores “the unmistakable love call that shimmered around children” through a consideration of Rashad in the young adult novel. In addition to Rashad’s own coming to consciousness regarding the “two-ness” of black racial experience, this presentation probes the “shimmering” that Morrison describes and asks what kind of knowledge undoes it. I interrogate how race and gender inform this light and ask if black children are as equally lit as other children.       –Michelle Hite
