Description

Black popular culture has been viewed by some as the creative expression of Black American identity. What does it mean when those who create that popular culture don't belong to the class of Black folks they seem to portray while potentially fulfilling the worst trappings of underclass ideology regarding the Black poor?"


 
Touré F. Reed:
Dr. Reed earned his BA in American Studies from Hampshire College (Amherst, MA), and his PhD in History from Columbia University (New York, NY). He is a fourth generation African American educator and third generation professor. Having spent his formative years in South West Atlanta, GA and New Haven, CT, Dr. Reed's research interests center on race, class, and inequality. In addition to being a historian of African American and 20th Century US History, Dr. Reed is a shred guitar enthusiast.
