This short essay responds to Tavia Nyong'o's insightful “Afro-philo-sonic Fictions,” a discussion of Weheliye's Phonographies and Julian Henriques's Sonic Bodies, concentrating in particular on the analytics of blackness in Western modernity, the place of Africa in diaspora discourse, and the conceptual provenances of black feminist approaches.
