Additional Information

A cruel irony underlying myths of the American dream and exceptionalism is the failure to fully acknowledge the labor of enslaved Africans and their descendants. Yet the conditions of that labor are often transformed into sites of agency that allow black people to game the system, or create new games entirely, contributing to globally influential black culture, aesthetics, and resistance.

Ernest Hardy and Tisa Bryant assemble a post-hip-hop visual anthology of film, TV clips, and diasporic black music examining the singular history of black labor, work, and life in America.
