Abstract:Therefore through an analysis of both lyrics and texts, "Phallic/ies and His(s)tories: Masculinity and the Black Nationalist Tradition, from Slave Spirituals to Rap Music" traces the unique---and ironic---survival and transformation of a literary political tradition initiated by the male members of an early nineteenth-century urban Black bourgeoisie into a politicized form of oral expression invented by the male members of a late twentieth-century urban Black "underclass."
