ABOUT THE BOOK:
Krista Franklin draws on Pan African histories, Black Surrealism, Afrofuturism, pop culture, art history, and the historical and present-day micro-to-macro violence inflicted upon Black people and other people of color, working to forge imaginative spaces for radical possibilities and visions of liberation.
Featuring 45 poems, 40 artworks, an author statement and an interview, Too Much Midnight chronicles the intersections between art and life, art and writing, the historical and the speculative, cultural and personal identity, the magical and the mundane.
“Celebrating the possibilities for extrasensory powers to resist oppressive narratives and change the minds of a society, Franklin reorders ritual and constructs fantasies.”
Matt Morris, Artforum
