Matthew W. Hughey

Twenty years have elapsed since the release of Spike Lee’s now infamous
indictment of Black fraternities and sororities in his film School Daze
(1988). Since then, the study of Black Greek Letter Organizations (BGLOs)
has burgeoned from a small peripheral field to one that has captured both
academic and mainstream attention; from the release of scholarship on BGLOs
such as Tamara Brown et. al’s African American Fraternities and Sororities:
The Legacy and the Vision (2005), Theda Skocpol et. al’s What a Mighty
Power We Can Be: African American Fraternal Groups and the Struggle for
Racial Equality (2007), and Gregory S. Park’s Black Greek-letter

Dredging Up Slavery:
Representations of Slavery in Contemporary Popular Culture

Though it has been over a century since it was outlawed in the U.S.,
slavery continually recurs as a theme in literature and other aspects of
American popular culture. Thus, this edited collection seeks to gather
essays that explore how the spectre of slavery appears and/or is rewritten
through a contemporary or even futuristic lens in popular culture. We
seek essays that examine this theme in literature, film, television,
music, graphic novels or comics, contemporary biography or autobiography,
etc.
