Over the past decade I’ve published articles on American institutional legitimacy in the wake of the contentious 2000 Presidential election, about the effects of long-term black political empowerment on black participation, about the role of media narratives on black attitudes about HIV/AIDS, and about the determinants of support for black nationalism, among others. But with my first book Stare in the Darkness: The Limits of Hip-hop and Black Politics I’ve become particularly interested in black politics in the wake of the neoliberal turn.
