Analyzing the African origins of Negro music and dance in a time of racism, fascism, and war -- Listening to Africa in the city, in the laboratory, and on record -- Embodying Africa against racial oppression, ignorance, and colonialism -- Disalienating movement and sound from the pathologies of freedom and time -- Desiring Africa, or Western civilization's discontents -- Conclusion: dance-music as rhizome.
David F. Garcia examines the work of a wide range of musicians, dancers, academics, and activists between the 1930s and the 1950s to show how their belief in black music's African roots would provide the means to debunk racist ideologies, aid decolonization of Africa, and ease racial violence.
