Greetings friends and fellow travellers,

The personal is political, that we know, so it probably won't surprise you to learn that there's more to booty-dancing in its various forms than, well, dance. There's a long tradition of different groups trying to claim and degrade black women's bodies - whatever they do with them, however they move, whatever they wear - and we hope you find food for thought in our examination of the politics of booty-dancing, and enjoy our selection of booty-dances from across the African diaspora.

Peace.
