ABSTRACT
The article critically appraises two books. They are "Color and Culture: Black Writers and the Making of the Modern Intellectual," by Ross Posnock and "Afrotopia: The Roots of African American Popular History," by Wilson Jeremiah. Indeed, one of the more startling implications of Posnock's and Moses's work is that cosmopolitanism, even as it is prescribed as an anecdote to feverishly parochial concepts of self, may have its roots deep in the production of the same provincialisms that it is expected to overcome.
