WHITE NEGROES When Cornrows Were in Vogue . . . and Other Thoughts on Cultural Appropriation

by | Read by Adenrele Ojo

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Given the current divisiveness in our country, WHITE NEGROES is a powerful audiobook with a message that will keep listeners thinking. Narrator Adenrele Ojo is extremely effective in delivering content that pushes back against white privilege and raises important questions about cultural appropriation, social inequality, political power and influence, and the ways that contributions by people of color are often undervalued or dismissed until they are embraced by white people. Ojo compellingly presents the author's argument, engaging listeners with a strong, decisive delivery. With pop-culture references ranging from Kim Kardashian to Christina Aguilera and examples that range from fashion designers to Rachel Dolezal to Black Lives Matter, the content is relevant and persuasive.
