Toni Morrison and the New Black examines how Morrison explores the concept of the new black in the context of post-soul, post-black and post-racial discourses. Morrison evolves the new black as symbolic of unprecedented black success in all walks of life, from politics to the media, business and beyond. Jaleel Akhtar's work shows how the new black reaffirms the possibility of upward mobility and success, and stands as testimony to the American Dream that anyone can achieve material success provided they work hard enough for it.

In his detailed, textured analysis, Jaleel Akhtar assesses God Help the Child asToni Morrison's articulation of "new black" identities as fluid, plastic and evolvingfrom both Harlem Renaissance conceptualizations of the "New Negro" and fromthe post-civil rights era
