9780465017652: Open Mike

Here, collected for the first time, are interviews and essays representing Michael Eric Dyson's most important thinking on race and identity. Exploring such topics as "whiteness" as seen through a black man's eye, modernism and postmodernism in black culture, and the emancipating role of black music from the plantation to the ghetto, Open Mike is a perfect introduction to Dyson's work and a must-have for students and scholars in African American Studies and Cultural Studies.

About the Author:

Michael Eric Dyson, named by Ebony as one of the hundred most influential black Americans, is the author of sixteen books, including Holler if You Hear Me, Is Bill Cosby Right? and I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King Jr. He is currently University Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University. He lives in Washington, D.C.

From Booklist:

A professor of African American studies and an ordained Baptist minister with a Ph.D. in religion and philosophy, Dyson blends esoteric analysis with insight into rap/hip-hop culture, reconciling views that many might consider incompatible. Not one to mince words, in recent years this intellectual has become somewhat controversial for his treatment of Martin Luther King's sexual escapades and academic plagiarism (I May Not Get There with You [2000]), and for his outspoken criticism of Michael Jordan. Dyson covers a lot of ground in this freewheeling collection of commentaries, whether he's analyzing rapper Tupac Shakur's life and death as a spiritual quest, or noting the revolutionary aspects of King's shift from liberal reformer to someone with a more radical viewpoint of race relations. Tending to seek out rather than avoid controversy, Dyson also treats figures as diverse as Malcolm X and the black Muslims, sports figures, and his compatriots on the theology of homoeroticism. This good introduction to an increasingly public figure will only stimulate readers' interest in reading more. Vernon Ford
