In Soul Babies, Mark Anthony Neal explains the complexities and contradictions of black life and culture after the end of the Civil Rights era. He traces the emergence of what he calls a "post-soul aesthetic," a transformation of values that marked a profound change in African American thought and experience. Lively and provocative, Soul Babies offers a valuable new way of thinking about black popular culture and the legacy of the sixties.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."validates Neal's intellectual and practical contribution to the fields of popular culture and Black cultural studies."
-Deborah Elizabeth Whaley, "American Studies, Fall 2002
"[Neal] makes a significant theoretical contribution to the existing intellectual work on Black popular culture."
-Deborah Elizabeth Whaley, "American Studies, Fall 2002
...".carves out a well-defined intellectual and theoretical space for the post-soul generation--the "soul babies of history."
-Deborah Elizabeth Whaley, "American Studies, Fall 2002
"this is a subtle and refreshing look at the aesthetic sensibilities of "Generation Hip-Hop" . . .."
-Choice, June 2002
"Mark Anthony Neal is that rare and gifted writer and thinker who can move easily between street corners and academia, hip-hop heads and high-brow intellectuals, as well as pop cultural markers as different as "Good Times" and "Batman." Indeed, Soul Babies recalls the best iconoclastic work of W.E.B. DuBois, E. Franklin Frazier, and bell hooks. Yes, Neal is that kind of intellectual giant-in-the-making: brutally honest with razor-sharp insights, and so ahead of his time that he is one of the voices we will look to many years from now for interpretations of these first days of the 21st century.."
-Kevin Powell, editor of "Step Into a World: A Global Anthology of the New Black Literature
