African American Rhetoric(s): Interdisciplinary Perspectives is an introduction to fundamental concepts and a systematic integration of historical and contemporary lines of inquiry in the study of African American rhetorics. Edited by Elaine B. Richardson and Ronald L. Jackson II, the volume explores culturally and discursively developed forms of knowledge, communicative practices, and persuasive strategies rooted in freedom struggles by people of African ancestry in America. Outlining African American rhetorics found in literature, historical documents, and popular culture, the collection provides scholars, students, and teachers with innovative approaches for discussing the epistemologies and realities that foster the inclusion of rhetorical discourse in African American studies. In addition to analyzing African American rhetoric, the contributors project visions for pedagogy in the field and address new areas and renewed avenues of research. The result is an exploration of what parameters can be used to begin a more thorough and useful consideration of African Americans in rhetorical space. African American Rhetoric(s) presents Reconstructionist, Black/African American, Nubian/Ancient Egyptian, and Afrocentric rhetorics. The essays collectively work to reclaim topics that have shifted to other disciplines, and they also delineate debates about African American studies within rhetoric and composition and communications studies. Contributors are Shirley Wilson Logan, Kalf Tal, Gwendolyn D. Pough, Jacqueline K. Bryant, Kimmika L.H. Williams, Clinton Crawford, Lena Ampadu, Elaine B. Richardson, Victoria Cliett, Adam J. Banks, Kermit E. Campbell, Vorris L. Nunley, Joyce Irene Middleton, and William W. Cook.
