Nationalizing Blacknessuses the music of the 1920s and 1930s to examine Cuban society as it begins to embrace Afrocuban culture.nbsp; Moore examines the public debate over ldquo;degenerate Africanismsrdquo; associated withcomparasor carnival bands; similar controversies associated withnbsp;sonmusic; the history of blackface theater shows; the rise of afrocubanismo in the context of anti-imperialist nationalism and revolution against Gerardo Machado; the history of cabaret rumba; an overview of poetry, painting, and music inspired by Afrocuban street culture; and reactions of the black Cuban middle classes toafrocubanismo.nbsp; He has collected numerous illustrations of early twentieth-century performers in Havana, many included in this book. Nationalizing Blacknessrepresents one of the first politicized studies of twentieth-century culture in Cuba.nbsp; It demonstrates how music can function as the center of racial and cultural conflict during the formation of a national identity.
