Frederick Douglass selected speeches and writings by Frederick Douglass( )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the greatest African American leaders and one of the most brilliant minds of his time, Frederick Douglass spoke and wrote with unsurpassed eloquence on almost all the major issues confronting the American people during his life - from the abolition of slavery to women's rights, from the Civil War to lynching, from American patriotism to black nationalism." "Between 1950 and 1975, Philip S. Foner collected the most important of Douglass's hundreds of speeches, letters, articles, and editorials into an impressive five-volume set, now long out of print. Abridged, adapted, and supplemented with several important texts that Foner did not include, Frederick Douglass: Selected Speeches and Writings presents the most significant, insightful, and elegant short works of Douglass's massive oeuvre."--Jacket

Growing up in slavery : stories of young slaves as told by themselves by Yuval Taylor( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Culled from full-length autobiographies, the voices of ten slaves--all under the age of nineteen--describe the full range of slave experiences, from starvation, torture, and violence, to love, laughter, and family life. Ten slaves all under the age of 19 tell their stories of enslavement, brutality, and dreams of freedom in this collection. Culled from full-length autobiographies, these accounts were selected to help teenagers relate to the horrific experiences of slaves their own age in the not-so-distant past. Included are stories of young slaves, all under the age of 19, torn from their mothers and families, suffering from starvation, and being whipped and tortured. But these are not all tales of deprivation and violence. Teenagers will see themselves in these accounts as the slaves challenge authority, play games, tell jokes, and fall in love. These stories cover the range of the slave experience, from the passage in slave ships across the Atlantic to daily life as a slave both on large plantations and in small city dwellings, and from escaping slavery to fighting in the Civil War. The writings of Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, William Wells Brown, Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Keckley, and other less famous slaves are included
Faking it : the quest for authenticity in popular music by Hugh Barker( Book )

Darkest America : black minstrelsy from slavery to hip-hop by Yuval Taylor( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yuval Taylor and Jake Austen investigate the complex history of black minstrelsy, adopted in the mid-nineteenth century by African American performers who played the grinning blackface fool to entertain black and white audiences. We now consider minstrelsy an embarrassing relic, but once blacks and whites alike saw it as a black art form--and embraced it as such. And, as the authors reveal, black minstrelsy remains deeply relevant to popular black entertainment, particularly in the work of contemporary artists like Dave Chappelle, Flavor Flav, Spike Lee, and Lil Wayne. Darkest America explores the origins, heyday, and present-day manifestations of this tradition, exploding the myth that it was a form of entertainment that whites foisted on blacks, and shining a sure-to-be controversial light on how these incendiary performances can be not only demeaning but also, paradoxically, liberating
The future of jazz by Will Friedwald( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jazz is now 100 years old, a venerable American institution predicated on the unpredictable. But recent signs - ranging from Ken Burn's documentary Jazz: A History of America's Music to the dominance of reissues of jazz over new recordings - have made many question whether jazz's past has now become more important than its future, or whether jazz has any future at all. In this book, composed entirely via e-mail, 10 leading jazz critics take on the various issues surrounding jazz's future - the dominance of mainstream jazz, its spread around the world, the difficulty of making a living playing it, the growth of repertory jazz, the dearth of interest among young African Americans, the paradoxically backward-looking nature of the avant-garde, and many others. Their conclusions are as surprising, witty, and edgy as the music itself."--BOOK JACKET

The quest for authenticity in popular music by H Barker( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The quest for authenticity, for the 'real', is a dominant factor in musical taste - be it the folklorist's search for forgotten bluesmen, the rock critic's elevation of raw power over sophistication, or importance of bullet wounds to the careers of hip-hop artists. This book looks at the myth of what it means to be 'real' and 'fake' in pop music
