The Humours of Black Life
iUniverse, 2003 - 360 Seiten
The Humours of Black Life exposes the underbelly of African-American culture in much the same way the successful "Preppie Handbook" unmasked WASP life in the '80s. Naturally, having been written on CP (colored people's) time, it has taken a bit longer to bring the colorful insights of The Humours of Black Life to light.
Using a mix of humor, sarcasm, and irony, Humours explores the life and times of Black folks in America. From the legacy of their African past, to the culture of slavery, to the philosophical poles of Cool and Conscience, to razor edged Hip Hop, Humours of Black Life chronicles the ways and why-fors of Black life without regrets, apologies, or recriminations in embarrassingly frank detail.
Beneath its humor, The Humours of Black Life makes a very positive statement about being Black in America. It is a history lesson for those that don't know the history and a social commentary for those who think they know all there is to know.
