About This Book

Amy Ongiri explores the interface between Black Power politics, the Black Arts cultural movement, and the production of postwar African American popular culture (from novels to hip hop and film) to show how formative they were for the construction of Black identity and the emergence of a Black aesthetic in the 1960s and 1970s.

Like our recent title _Black Fascisms_ this is a brave book about an important period in African American cultural life.
