This page introduces readers to analyses of music and media in relation to black identities, politics, and cultures. You’ll find lots of sources on both music and television/film. Important note, however: the sources below are just an introduction to what we have available. Do a Summon Search, for example, and use keywords such as “Kendrick Lamar” or “Tupac Shakur” and you will get an extensive list of articles/books. Try it, and see all the new directions academic scholarship is heading!
