Description - Soul Babies by Mark Anthony Neal

Soul Babies examines the world of black youth since the Black Power and Civil Rights era. Reading political events, musical works, social forms, media representations and literary productions, Mark Anthony Neal introduces a strong new concept of the "Post-Soul Asthetic" to black cultural criticism that gives a name to the values and concerns of African Americans since the 1960s. In the films of Spike Lee, the music of R. Kelley, the rise of a "new" urban working class, and the formation of "Hip-Hop" intellectuals, Neal argues that the "Post-Soul Asthetic" is repudating much of the black modern traditions and focusing instead on contemporary problems of culture and identity.
