Abstract: Jimi Hendrix, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, and Bob Kaufman are black artists working within predominantly white milieus. The public histories of each case exemplifies the continued marginalization of black culture within the mainstream. As pop cultural commodities, Hendrix and OFWGKTA's appeals to white audiences have resulted in discourses that divorce them from the black cultural traditions in which their work is grounded. A poet whose work was mostly done in public performance rather than publication, Bob Kaufman was more resistant to capitalist mechanisms, and until recently was excluded from literary history almost entirely. As a result, the African-American perspective that informs his poetry is all but forgotten within the public history of the Beats. This thesis re-grounds Hendrix and OFWGKTA's music within black traditions and re-engages with Bob Kaufman life and work, illuminating the processes by which such traditions become marginalized.
