MEDIA REVIEWS

"Soul Thieves is a collection of essays that critically weighs the consequences of appropriating black culture. ... The volume has broad appeal and informs academics how black material culture is conversant with many of the same discourses as conventional historical narratives. ... Soul Thieves is a welcomed addition to interdisciplinary fields, African American studies in particular." (Kameelah L. Martin, Journal of American Culture, Vol. 102 (3), December, 2015)

"This ground breaking interdisciplinary publication is long overdue and offers deep insight into the efficacy of African American popular culture and it's critical impact on shaping artistic cultural production on a global scale. The contributors, leading scholars in their respective research areas, set the record straight through their thought provoking and accessible historical research." - Melanye White Dixon, Associate Professor, Department of Dance, The Ohio State University, USA
