this weekend’s reading. I have had the honor of watching this book develop. It fills a necessary gap in the history of popculture in this country and the place within it that black people have always occupied. It’s beautifully bound and the images and commentary are outstanding. I try not to use this space for promotion too often but I feel this is something that everyone needs in their home library. @vintageblackglamour
