‘I’ve been thinking about The Matrix recently because those small sunglasses are back in fashion. In this essay, Will Harris really thinks about The Matrix, among other things from the personal to the political to philosophy to pop culture. Mostly it’s a mixture of all of the above, and he writes brilliantly.’
From the publisher
Mixed-Race Superman is a reflection on the lives of two very different supermen: Barack Obama and Keanu Reeves. In an era where a man endorsed by the Klu Klux Klan can sit in the White House, Will Harris argues that the mixed-race background of each gave them a shapelessness that was a form of resistance. Drawing on his own personal experience and examining the way that these two men have been embedded in our collective consciousness, Harris asks what they can teach us about race and heroism.
