Summary
"This book analyzes the work of minstrel performer Bert Williams, director Oscar Micheaux, writer Ralph Ellison, painter Michael Ray Charles, and director Spike Lee, all through the lens of Spike Lee's misunderstood film Bamboozled. Equal parts biography and cultural analysis, it examines the intersections of these five artists and Bamboozled, investigating their shared legacy of resistance against misrepresentation"-- Provided by publisher.
