9780230108974: Soul Thieves: The Appropriation and Misrepresentation of African American Popular Culture (Contemporary Black History)

Soul Thieves: The Appropriation and Misrepresentation of African American Popular Culture is a timely and engaging multidisciplinary collection of essays that examines both historically and contemporary manifestations of appropriated and commodified forms of African American popular culture.  The book includes analyses of the misuse and in some cases outright abuse of black popular culture through various genres.  Hip hop is, and has been, one of the most dominant African American popular culture creations and is denoted in many of the offerings in this volume; however, Soul Thieves is a historically inclusive documentation of the misappropriation of black popular culture, thus spanning other areas and genres besides the contemporary and current craze including music, dance, television, film, fashion and beauty, sports, and popular fiction.  This book documents that historically African Americans have been in the forefront in the creation of American popular culture.

Review:

“Soul Thieves is a collection of essays that critically weighs the consequences of appropriating black culture. ... The volume has broad appeal and informs academics how black material culture is conversant with many of the same discourses as conventional historical narratives. ... Soul Thieves is a welcomed addition to interdisciplinary fields, African American studies in particular.” (Kameelah L. Martin, Journal of American Culture, Vol. 102 (3), December, 2015)

"This ground breaking interdisciplinary publication is long overdue and offers deep insight into the efficacy of African American popular culture and it's critical impact on shaping artistic cultural production on a global scale. The contributors, leading scholars in their respective research areas, set the record straight through their thought provoking and accessible historical research." - Melanye White Dixon, Associate Professor, Department of Dance, The Ohio State University, USA
