About the Book:

Let's Get It On features the art of Reza Abdoh, Elia Arce, Chila Kumari Burman, Ronald Fraser-Monro and more as well as essays by Cosco Fusco and bell hooks and others. The collection evaluates various forms of African-American performance art from the circle of the dance under slavery to carnival and its masquerade of identities, and the validity of the art form in a contemporary society.

What people say:

"This passionate and provocative collection brings together a rich mix of voices to reveal the dazzling creativity of live arts performance at the critical edge of contemporary cultural politics." — Kobena Mercer, Yale University Professor of African American Studies
