Black Empire was a tongue-in-cheek speculative fiction novel by conservative African American writer George S. Schuyler originally published under his pseudonym of Samuel I. Brooks. the collected novel detailed the attempts of a radical African-American group called the Black Internationale, equipped with superscience and led by the charismatic Doctor Belsidus, who succeed in creating their own independent nation on the African continent. The novel is believed to be a lampoon of Marcus Garvey’s Back-to-Africa movement and the Black Star Line.
