Abstract

in the “Coda” Warren oer ff s as final words. The book announces that now is time to bid adieu to the Human. Here is the moment the strident focus the book places on nihilism and black nothing reaches its impasse. The final coda is quite contrary to the opening scene of the book. In response to the 2016 release of Baltimore Police Department records, Reverend Herbert Brown III responds to the description of a teenage boy who is stripped searched in front of his girlfriend. By reanimating the words of Rev. Brown, Warren announces that ontological terror is the destruc- tion of something, rather than nothing, that is quite specific. The soul, psyche, and spirit. Contending with, which is perhaps an acceptance of, black nothing, Warren argues “will set us on a spiritual path” (172). As a reader I am curious to see spiritu- ality expanded upon as an anti-philosophical imperative. If David Marriot has so gravely illustrated that the black psyche is not free, the curiosity I oer her ff e won- ders the same, can Black spirituality fre be e? patrice D.
