UCLA course uses Cardi B to teach about ‘respectability politics’

Article here. Excerpt:

'A summer course at the University of California, Los Angeles, is using the rapper Cardi B to explore the subject of “respectability politics” and its “historical relationship with black women.”

The class, taught by guest lecturer Christian Green, “analyzes U.S. history, ranging from the post-Reconstruction era to the country’s current political administration, and the struggle for black women to gain respect in American society,” according to The Daily Bruin.

The professor is a “self-professed Cardi B fan” who admires the rapper’s “rise to worldwide success without sacrificing her authenticity, such as the way she speaks,” as well as her involvement in the socialist Bernie Sanders’ political campaign.'
