The highly distinctive styles adopted by black men and women over the last 40 years may have had their origins in the African diaspora, but they have also been molded by politics, cultural exchange, and the desire of different social groups to forge their identity. This lively and colorful book looks at the huge variety to be seen in black clothing, hairstyles, and accessories, whether in West Africa or Jamaica or on the streets of the United States and Great Britain.
Published to accompany an exhibition opening at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, in October 2004, this book is written by a team of authors who draw on personal experience and document real people in real situations over four decades. From the vibrant textiles of West Africa to clothes influenced by hip-hop and gospel culture, this important book illustrates the significance of dress in political and socio-cultural terms.
Carol Tulloch is senior research fellow in black visual culture at Chelsea College of Art, London.
