Abstract:

This paper will explore the proliferation of superhero themes in Black music and concert performance in the 1970s. While a number of artists--such as Parliament/Funkadelic, Slave, Earth, Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang and the Commodores--embraced superhero-inspired themes and characters in their music and performances, organized efforts to consolidate Black economic power and market share in the music industry faced serious challenges and crises. This context will inform an analysis aimed to capture the creative tensions between artistic content and the political economy of the day.
