Cultural Hegemony and African American Development

By Clovis E. Semmes | Go to book overview

generational discontinuities between the 1920s and the 1960s.

Cruse's interpretive frame, his work outlining a theory of the cities, and his focus on the important role of the organization, production, and control of culture in an advanced capitalist society are useful for future theoretical and empirical work in African American studies. In sum, Cruse's work is instructive by its methodological example and by its theoretical substance. It extends a Black intellectual tradition, and it affirms the metaproblem of cultural hegemony as a significant socio-cultural dialectic driving intellectual inquiry in African American studies. Harold Cruse has given scholars a vision through which to coherently and logically recognize the key parameters and essential elements of Black, African American, or Africana studies.
