The Color of Jazz: Race and Representation in Postwar American Culture / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- University Press of Mississippi
This study of America's attitudes toward jazz focuses on a momentous period in postwar history - from the end of World War II to the beginning of the Black Power Movement. Exploring the diverse representations of jazz and jazz musicians in literature and popular culture, it connects this uneven reception and skewed use of jazz with the era's debates about race and racial difference.
