This passionate and provocative book tells the complete story of black music in the last fifty years, and in doing so outlines the perilous position of black culture within white American society. In a fast paced narrative, Nelson George's book chronicles the rise and fall of "race music" and its transformation into an R&B that eventually dominated the airwaves only to find itself diluted and submerged as crossover music.
