"ARE YOU ENTERTAINED? re-examines Blackness in popular culture in the digital age. Inspired by Stuart Hall's essay "What is this 'Black' in Black popular culture?" this book contains essays and interviews which explore the complexities of Black popular culture with a focus on the history that has led to this point. Highlighting the challenge Black popular culture must negotiate as it contends with white consumerism and the white gaze, this book emphasizes the cultural changes of the last quarter century and their impacts. ARE YOU ENTERTAINED? covers both new and little known material, bridging the gap between early scholarship on Black popular culture and new scholarship. The collection offers a wide range of perspectives on aspects of popular culture across time period, medium and genre"-- Provided by publisher.
