Choose 2-3 pieces of pop culture and have the authors discuss them, drawing on the ideas and topics we have read. How do the artists weave race / politics into the art? How might some of the authors we’ve read respond to the artwork(s)? What themes or concepts appear? Is the piece of pop culture is flawed in someway? What are its shortcomings? Cite the sources as well so make sure you put the page number of the text you find the dialogue in. A good paper will demonstrate that you have read the material and understand the ideas; an excellent paper will show the command of these ideas. The Authors we can Use are….

Example Essay: (Kwame Ture, Charles Hamilton, Vince Hutchings, Kimberle Crenshaw, and Timothy Lukes sit in a coffee shop discussing Beyonces Homecoming.) Ture and Hamilton: Notice her use of the Black Panther party iconography. She is delivering a message of Black Power to her audience. Lukes: It is indeed a powerful example of post-modernism! Art at its audience! Crenshaw: Perhaps, but notice that she uses pink and yellow colors in her uniforms. She is being ironic by gendering the traditionally machismo look of the Black Panthers. This is an example of intersectionality. Beyonces message is not merely one of Black Power but of female Black Power.
