Race, Gender, and Black Popular Culture

Image for the Race, Gender and Popular Culture working group: Sister Rosetta Tharpe

The intellectual goal of the Race, Gender, and Black Popular Culture working group is to introduce new questions regarding Black expressive culture, commodity culture, questions of authenticity, and performances of race and gender. The working group explores the tension between black cultural production on the periphery and mainstream articulations of blackness in national markets and an increasingly web‐based society.
