9781592130290: Yo Mama!: New Raps, Toasts, Dozens, Jokes, And

Collected primarily in metropolitan New York and Philadelphia during the classic era of black 'street poetry' (i.e., during the late 1960s and early 1970s) these raps, signifyings, toasts, boasts, jokes and children's rhymes will delight general readers as well as scholars. Ranging from the simple rhymes that accompany children's games to verbally inventive insults and the epic exploits of traditional characters like Shine and Stagger Lee, these texts sound the deep rivers of culture, echoing two continents. Onwuchekwa Jemie's introductory essay situates them in a globally pan-African context and relates them to more recent forms of oral culture such as rap and spoken word. Author note: Onwuchekwa Jemie teaches African American and African Literature at Howard University. He is the author of "Langston Hughes: An Introduction to the Poetry" and co-author of "Toward the Decolonization of African Literature".
