Description: A compelling exploration of Black English from its roots to its force in contemporary culture

In this timely book, renowned linguist John Rickford provides the definitive guide to Black English from its origins, to its new directions, to its powerful fascination for society at large. Drawing on fresh research, Rickford achieves a rare feat: popular reading filled with genuine revelation. Spoken Soul is loaded with examples from such icons as August Wilson, Richard Pryor, and Eddie Murphy. Rickford also crashes through the rigid divisions separating "high" and "low" culture. Telling the story of the language links such apparently disparate figures as Toni Morrison, Jesse Jackson, and Lauryn Hill.
