Black, Blanc, Beur is about the emergence and growing notoriety of rap music and hip-hop culture in the French-speaking world (France, Quebec, and Western Africa). It provides an introduction to many forms of expression of hip-hop cultures (rap music, hip-hop dance, and graffiti/tagging). In addition to a foreword by Adam Krims, a noted rap authority, this volume has contributions by some of the most renowned hip-hop scholars on both sides of the Atlantic and addresses hip-hop from the perspective of various disciplines.

Alain-Philippe Durand is Professor of French and Director of the School of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (SILLC) at the University of Arizona and Visiting Professor at the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Florianopolis, Brazil.


The first book in English devoted entirely to Francophone rap, and as such aims at filling an important gap...the wide range of relevant approaches used in most of the essays, as well as the variety of issues discussed by their authors are worth, I think, an attentive reading. Notes: The Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association A valuable addition to the growing body of academic literature in English on non-Anglophone hip-hop outside the USA. European Journal Of Communication This interdisciplinary volume should make the field of French/francophone hip-hop more accessible to Anglophone readers, particularly those who may wish to embark upon comparative studies of hip-hop culture around the world. Modern and Contemporary France ...a very useful work for future research on the ethnology of hip-hop. Anthropologie Et Societes, Vol. 30, No. 2 (2006) ...for those among us who enjoy teaching popular music in our French classes to increase student vocabulary, improve student pronunciation, and introduce students to contemporary Francophone culture, Black, Blanc, Beur provides the essential background information for the instructor. Black, Blanc, Beur does an excellent job of introducing the uninitiated into the world of Francophone rap music from an interdisciplinary angle...particularly noteworthy is the explanation by Durand in his introduction on the volume's title.
