Frank B. Wilderson III, UC Irvine Professor of African American Studies and Drama, discusses his political memoir, Incognegro: A Memoir of Exile and Apartheid. During South Africa's transition, Wilderson taught at universities in Johannesburg and Soweto by day. By night, he helped the African National Congress (ANC) coordinate clandestine propaganda, launch psychological warfare, and more. In this mesmerizing political memoir, Wilderson's lyrical prose flows from unspeakable dilemmas in the red dust and ruin of South Africa to his return to political battles raging quietly on US campuses and in his intimate life. Readers will find themselves suddenly overtaken by the subtle but resolute force of Wilderson's biting wit, rare vulnerability, and insistence on bearing witness to history no matter the cost.
