This product is currently sold out.
Ever wonder why we're still talking about "good hair, straight versus kinky hair?" and "light versus dark skin?" If Black people can "tan"? Or what's up with that white girl/guy with "locs"?
This book both celebrates and examines the presentation of Blackness in every day life and asks, "If the body can be read like a text where readers can draw certain interpretations based on signs, symbols, and culture, how are Black bodies and Black hair perceived?"
Blackberries and Redbones features a total of 26 chapters of engaging poems, creative writings and scholarly essays that all examine meanings of the Black anatomy, hair, and politics in a global world. What are some of the relationships between physical appearance, genetic structure, representation, and everyday lived experiences of Blackness? How are Black bodies (mis)understood in life, art, popular culture, mass media, or cross-cultural interactions?"
"Blackberries and Redbones: Critical Articulations of Black Hair/Body Politics" provides readers with a unique opportunity to both celebrate and scrutinize the presentation of Blackness in everyday life; to examine the material and physical consequences associated with these issues while also encouraging readers to forge ahead with deeper insights of these ever-important realities. Forward by Dr. Haki Madhubuti, Founder Third World Press.
