Edited by James L. Conyers Jr. - Contributions by Rockell Brown; James L. Conyers Jr.; Akil Houston; Bruce E. Johansen; Amber Johnson; Tristan Jones; Jeremy Harris Lipschultz; Calvin Monroe; TaNeisha Page; Gabrielle Shepard; Siobhan E. Smith and Valethia Watkins

Africana Race and Communication: A Social Study of Film, Communication, and Social Media focuses on the areas of History, Ethos, Motif, and Mythology-Philosophy. This study is an interdisciplinary study, which surveys the collection, interpretation, and analysis of Black communication and culture. Likewise, the intellectual dexterity of Africana Studies as an interdisciplinary body of knowledge postures alternative ways of probing Africana phenomena. This volume provides a categorical lens matrix of Africana Studies to locate race and communication in place, space, and time. Thus, it provides readers with a compilation of literary, historical, philosophical, and communicative essays that attempt to describe and evaluate the Africana experience from a centered perspective. « less more »
