By T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

There are many people who have assisted me in writing this book. There were times when I had just had enough and those individuals offered support, encouragement, and feedback. I would like to thank my editor, Eric Zinner, Emily Park, as well as the production and marketing team at NYU Press. Your enthusiasm at the early stages was catching. I would like to thank my former colleagues at Hamilton College and those at Vanderbilt University, in particular Mona Frederick at the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities, Linda Manning, Director of the Women's Center, and Monica Casper, Director of Women's and Gender Studies. Thanks to Aishah Simmons (everyone should view NO!:therapedocumentary.com), Nekesa Moody, whose essay on hip hop and women continues to be inspiring, and Elizabeth Hadley. Ketura D. Brown, my research assistant, deserves a special thanks for her dedication and smarts. I'd also like to thank Alice Randall (keep those novels coming), Tiffany Patterson, Thadious Davis, W. Jelani Cobb, Davarian Baldwin, Yelitza Nieves, Pamela Des Barres, rock and roll's first groupie to tell all, Tiona McClodden, Dwight McBride, and Mireille Miller-Young for the intriguing conversation on net porn in Brazil at ASWAD. I'd like to thank the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nash-
