Books By Author W. T. Lhamon

Jim Crow, American by W. T. Lhamon Jim Crow, American, Paperback (November 2009)

Jim Crow is the figure that has long represented America's imperfect union. This work of Jim plays and songs presents performances that assembled backtalk, banter, masquerade, and dance into the diagnostic American style.

Jump Jim Crow by W. T. Lhamon Jump Jim Crow, Hardback (August 2003)

Lhamon's reading shows us how these plays built a public blackness and how they engaged a disaffected white audience, who found in Jim Crow's sass and wit and madcap dancing an expression of rebellion and resistance against the oppression and confinement suffered by all ordinary people.

Raising Cain by W. T. Lhamon Raising Cain, Paperback (April 2000)

This is the story of an insubordinate, rebellious, popular culture stretching from Jim Crow to Hip hop. It looks at how the outcasts, following blackface, of official culture have made their own place in the world, and are now represented by stand-up comedy, rock 'n' roll, talk TV and Hip hop.
