About the book: “A New Book on American Culture What Makes That Black? The African American Aesthetic in American Expressive Culture details the definition, structure, function, consciousness, history, application, and spirit of the African American Aesthetic and how that spirit manifests as a foundation in the general American expressive culture. Through objective scholarly analysis and stories that are both personal and communal, Luana first analyzes seventy-five elements in the African American Aesthetic; then details the roots of the Aesthetic as a form of cultural intelligence–a way of thinking that serves not only African Americans but also any one who uses it.” Read more here.
