DOR 24, 1501

In this lecture, David Diallo will analyze the development of rap music from an expressive form produced by and for the Bronx youth to a marker of racial identity. He will first examine the inception of rap in a specific and demographically heterogeneous socio-geographical territory – the Bronx of the 1970s with its black and Puerto Rican population – before highlighting its discursive transition to “black music.”

BIO: David Diallo is Professor of American Studies at the University of Bordeaux, France. His research interests focus on African-American history and expressive forms. In 2019, he published Collective Participation and Audience Engagement in Rap Music (Palgrave).
