Abstract:
			
Written exclusively by Black scholars on behalf of, and in
collaboration with local communities, the book looks at the
commonalities and differences among Black speech communities in Africa
and the Diaspora.

Topics include:
* the OJ Simpson trial
* language issues in Southern Africa and Francophone West Africa
* the language of Hip Hop
* the language of the Rastafaria in Jamaica

With a foreword by Ngugi wa Thiong'o, this is essential reading for
anyone with an interest in the linguistic implications of
colonization.
