Check out this latest post on the African American Intellectual History Society's blog--an interview with Robeson Taj Frazier on his latest book, THE EAST IS BLACK: COLD WAR CHINA IN THE BLACK RADICAL IMAGINATION.
Dr. Frazier is a graduate alumni of the African Diaspora Studies program, and presently an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. His research explores black political culture and popular culture, globalization and cross-cultural traffic, and African diasporic intellectual history, with a specific focus on the intersections between African American culture and other cultures, especially 20th and 21st century China.
