About a month ago, I did a long-overdue interview with Ytasha, who's book Post Black: How A New Generation of African Americans is Redefining Identity, came out in January.  You may recall that she interviewed me for her blog back then.

The interview is less than 20 minutes long.  In it, among the topics we touch on:

  • When she first observed that notions of black identity were in flux
  • Of the trends/drivers she cites, she picks her top three
  • How, in the absence of obvious activism, people look to music as a definition of who African Americans are

Finally, if you're in NYC and are interested in meeting Ytasha in person, she'll be reading on

Wednesday, May 12
