Description:

SIGNED hardcover first edition - First printing. "In this collection of his Village Voice "Native Son" columns (written mostly since 1988), George "reports on, hangs out with, and takes measure of" a variety of black Americans, from Marvin Gaye, Rick James, Kool Moe Dee, and Tracy Chapman to Al Sharpton, David Dinkins, Magic Johnson, and Spike Lee. His focus is the "black aesthetic," "black cultural emasculation," and the recent "tenor of African American culture." Dedicating this book to Richard Wright and James Baldwin, who "taught him it was all right for little black boys to write about how they saw the world with no apologies and no fear," George minces no words as he thoughtfully addresses misogyny, rap music, gangs, Afrocentrism, "blaxploitation," and what he called in 1990 "Malcolmania." His 33-page chronology of post-soul black culture is invaluable." (Library Journal review) SIGNED on the title page. Photographs. xii, 329 pp. Fine in fine dust jacket. LIMITED TIME SALE: All prices shown have been REDUCED by 25% for the ABEBOOKS SALE. Dust jacketsare protected with archival covers, and books are carefully packed for shipping.
