The anthology of rap by Adam Bradley( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rap has emerged as one of the most influential cultural forces of our time. In this work, the editors demonstrate that rap is also a wide reaching and vital poetic tradition born of beats and rhymes. This pioneering anthology brings together more than three hundred lyrics written over thirty years, from the "old school" to the "golden age" to the present day. Rather than aim for encyclopedic coverage, the editors render through examples the richness and diversity of rap's poetic tradition. They feature classic lyrics that helped define the genre as well as lesser known gems. Both a fan's guide and a resource for the uninitiated, this book showcases the inventiveness and vitality of rap's lyrical art, also providing an overview of rap poetics and the forces that shaped each period in rap's historical development.--From publisher description

The Team that changed the world( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As told by former Globetrotters, current and former NBA players and coaches, journalists, and celebrities, this documentary traces the development of the team through its roots in Depression-era Chicago and early barnstorming years, through the volatile racial politics of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, when they were at their peak. During those years, the team was regularly competing against the nation's best college players--and even beating NBA squads before the league was integrated. The Globetrotters turned sport into a form of vaudeville without sacrificing amazing displays of skill, as footage of Marques Haynes and Reece "Goose" Tatum makes clear. As they toured the world, the Globetrotters shook off their "minstrel show" reputation, becoming a symbol of racial progress and American good will
Blacking up hip-hop's remix of race and identity( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hip-Hop was created by urban youth of color more than 30 years ago amid racial oppression and economic marginalization. It has moved beyond that specific community and been embraced by young people worldwide, elevating it to a global youth culture. The ambitious and hard-hitting documentary Blacking Up: hip-hop's remix of race and identity looks at the popularity of hip-hop among America's white youth. It asks whether white identification is rooted in admiration and a desire to transcend race or if it is merely a new chapter in the long continuum of stereotyping, mimicry and cultural appropriation? Does it reflect a new face of racial understanding in white America or does it reinforce an ugly history? Against the unique backdrop of American popular music, Blacking up explores racial identity in U.S. society. The film artfully draws parallels between the white hip-hop fan and previous incarnations of white appropriation from blackface performer Al Jolson to mainstream artists like Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and Eminem. It interweaves portraits of white hip-hop artists and fans with insightful commentary by African American cultural critics such as Amiri Baraka, Nelson George, Greg Tate, comedian Paul Mooney and hip-hop figures Chuck D., Russell Simmons, M1 of Dead Prez, and DJ Kool Herc"--Container
