MEDIA REVIEWS

Debra King's scholarship is both original and sound. Considering the historical importance of group and individual names and naming traditions to Africans and African Americans, Deep Talk will be of great value to scholars who engage European and black vernacular theoretical models.--Jacquelyn Y. McLendon, author of "The Politics of Color in the Fiction of Jessie Fauset and Nella Larsen"
