"Race. A four-letter word. The greatest social divide in American life, a half-century ago and today. During that time, the U.S. has seen the most dramatic demographic and cultural shifts in its history, what can be called the colorization of America. But the same nation that elected its first Black president on a wave of hope--another four-letter word--is still plunged into endless culture wars. How do Americans see race now? How has that changed--and not changed--over the half-century? After eras framed by words like 'multicultural' and 'post-racial,' do we see each other any more clearly? Who We Be remixes comic strips and contemporary art, campus protests and corporate marketing campaigns, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Trayvon Martin into a powerful, unusual, and timely cultural history of the idea of racial progress. In this follow-up to the award-winning classic Can't Stop Won't Stop : A History of the Hip-Hop Generation, Jeff Chang brings fresh energy, style, and sweep to the essential American story"--… (mehr)

An amazing look at how the cultural image of American went from white to one of many colors. A joy, a treat, an education. In all the best ways. ( )

A look at race, art, pop culture and more. I had been under the impression this was his other book which I understand is about the rise of hip-hop. No matter, because this was a fascinating read.
 
Chang takes us through a partial history of the US (from the 60's) through almost present day (2014) as viewed through the eyes of art, music, political movements, ads, etc. It's a really interesting view of the societal, political, demographic changes through these lenses, rather than as a general historical look by events. And it is how people of color have shaped these movements, changes, and developments.
 
From the first African American syndicated cartoonist to the influence of the Old Spice 'The Man Your Man Could Smell Like' ads and more. I have to say, some of the commentary and background was really fascinating: breaking down topics like the Old Spice commercial and whether the appeal of Isiah Mustafah came because he fit certain parameters (and because he is shirtless in all his ads) to the once numerous sitcoms and TV shows filled with black actors suddenly gone after networks decided they didn't need those anymore, etc.
 
It's a dense read and it's something I'd have to chew on for later consumption. I also had trouble with some areas: the author tends to jump back and forth in time and that can make it somewhat difficult to follow. He also talks quite a bit about general art, and as that is not something that interests me I could feel my eyes glaze over.
 
Still, it's an excellent read and I'm glad I picked it up. It's not a beach read (really, the book is heavy). However I'd strongly recommend picking it up if you have any interest at all in the topics Chang covers. ( )
