>From Bourgeois to Boojie: Black Middle-Class Performances
 
We seek engaging papers/writings for an edited book collection. The essays are being compiled in recognition of the golden anniversary of E. Franklin Frazier's controversial monograph __Black Bourgeoisie__ (1957), and must discuss both class and blackness as expressed in film, literature, media, music, autobiography/biography, theatre, or the performance of everyday life. The publisher for the collection will be announced at a later date.
