This special issue of SAQ, co-edited by Michaeline Crichlow and Gregson Davis, is devoted to the theme of "Aimé Césaire and Négritude." The essays revisit Césaire's influential and controversial brand of "negritude," as he articulated it in his literary work (poetry, drama, and prose) in the course of his lengthy career on the island of Martinique in the French Caribbean. The commissioned contributions provide a wide range of fresh critical and philosophical perspectives by leading scholars in the field that refine and clarify the concept of negritude and its relation to the ongoing project of cultural decolonization.
