Jump Jim Crow by W. T. Lhamon

Book Description

Upstaging conventional stories and forms, giving direction and expression to the unruly attitudes of a burgeoning underclass, the plays in this anthology enact a vital force in great fictions, movies and musics of the Atlantic and in the jumping, speedy styles that join all these forms.

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.

Deliberate Speed by W. T. Lhamon Deliberate Speed, Paperback (May 2002)

In this text, W.T. Lhamon offers an analysis of hesitant movements that sought to challenge what David Riesman once labeled "the other-directed society".

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.
