Professor Fuchs African Americans and Popular Culture 1 Abstract 1. The subtopic in American Popular Culture that I chose to learn about for this assignment
is African Americans and popular culture.
Since the first Africans, were brought to America by slave ships, They’ve had a profound
influence on American popular culture. What started off as them doing things to be reminded of
where they came from, has brought a signature style and traditions of ethnic culture to America,
that everyone around the world would soon emulate. Their influence on everything from Soul
food, Hip Hop Music, Breakdancing and even the clothing that they wear, has been popularized
all over the globe. It has become one of the most idolized subtopic in American Popular Culture.
As you look through American Popular Culture, African Americans influence can be felt
everywhere from the White House to the little farming communities out in Idaho.
