The highly distinctive styles adopted by black men and women over the last 40 years may have had their origins in the African diaspora, but they have also been molded by politics, cultural exchange, and the desire of different social groups to forge their identity. This lively and colorful book looks at the huge variety to be seen in black clothing, hairstyles, and accessories, whether in West Africa or Jamaica or on the streets of the United States and Great Britain.
