Jay-Z/Africa

Jay-Z/Africa

Consider the 4 Africanisms as explored in Giddings’ “Afrocentric Jay-Z” essay: communal, oral, spiritual, matrifocal. What is the meaning and significance of each Africanism in African American culture and history, according to Giddings? What evidence/support is given for each of the 4 Africanism; are you convinced or unconvinced; and why or why not? What are at least 2 connections you can draw between Giddings’ arguments and what the other sources (i.e., F&H text, chapter 1) presents about African culture?
