Death of the Negro: an African American Experience in the Development of Black Popular Culture is a three volume examination of how African Americans negated the notion of there ever being a character called the Negro devoid of culture. As they were beaten and castigated every day, these conscious beings continued to generate a cultural form that would inform and influence the growth and development of what became "American" culture.Each volume treats this process as a continuum. i.e., as a never ending process.
