Magical Negro is an archive of black everydayness, a catalog of contemporary folk heroes, an ethnography of ancestral grief, and an inventory of figureheads, idioms, and customs. These American poems are both elegy and jive, joke and declaration, songs of congregation and self-conception. They connect themes of loneliness, displacement, grief, ancestral trauma, and objectification, while exploring and troubling tropes and stereotypes of Black Americans. Focused primarily on depictions of black womanhood alongside personal narratives, the collection tackles interior and exterior politics--of both the body and society, of both the individual and the collective experience. In Magical Negro, Parker creates a space of witness, of airing grievances, of pointing out patterns. In these poems are living documents, pleas, latent traumas, inside jokes, and unspoken anxieties situated as firmly in the past as in the present--timeless black melancholies and triumphs.… (mehr)

This is a collection that grew on me with time and with re-reading, so I'm glad it's one that I bought instead of checked out. The first time through I liked it. It was good. There were a handful of poems that I loved, but far more left me feeling boxed out. I mean, clearly they were not FOR me, as a white girl, so I thought, that's fine. I got out of this what I can.

But every time I pick it up I love it more. More poems zing, and I flip through, vaguely incredulous, trying to find the poems that left me cold last time and failing. This collection slips between the ordinary and everyday of race and racism in America and the "Magical Negroes:" Diana Ross. Michael Jackson. Jesus. The Strong Black Woman. "Where did Harriet Tubman sleep? Who did Harriet Tubman kiss?"

My early favorites were "Magical Negro #217: Diana Ross Finishing a Rib in Alabama, 1990s," "Nancy Meyers and My Dream of Whiteness," and "Magical Negro #80: Brooklyn." But now I love deep and wide. ( )

A really gorgeous set of poems; Parker creates these rich worlds that are painful but also real and varied and beautiful, and the women that populate them face so much and are so real even when they are images or reference stereotypes. So many good poems in here; I think my favorite was "Toward a New Theory of Negro Propaganda." ( )

I like how the wording in a lot of the poems is how people would actually say it, but for most of the poems I preferred the content over the structure. Read my full review here. ( )

I so wanted to love this poetry collection, since I’ve seen nothing but good reviews about it.

But I didn’t.

There were phrases and poems that sang to me, but as a whole, no.
Perhaps I need to pick it up again at a later time and reread it.
