Summary
"Young's encyclopedic book combines essay, cultural criticism, and lyrical chorus to illustrate the African American tradition of lying- telling tales, fibbing, improvising, jazzing up, "storying". What emerges is a persuasive argument for the many ways that African American culture is American culture, and the centrality of art and artfulness to our daily lives. Moving from gospel to soul, funk to freestyle, Young sifts through the shadows, the bootleg, the remix- all the grey areas of our history, literature, and music."--p.[4] of cover
