I really learned a lot about the history of handclap games and just how much Black girls and women are responsible for, well, a good majority of our oral histories. This book was inspirational and because I am a female I was truly interested in this book.

The Games Black Girls Play: Learning The Ropes From Double Dutch To Hip Hop by Kyra D. Gaunt
This book is essential reading for anyone who cares not only about the history of girls games and music, black girls experience, but also the origins of hip hop. Hip Hop lineage is often conceived of as male--Gaunt reimagines the critical and central role that black girls music and games play in hip hop's story and also in influencing culture generally. A terrific read and central scholarship. The Games Black Girls Play is an exciting and original work that should forever transform the way we think about the sources of black, indeed American, populat music.
This is a bold, brilliant, and beautifully written book. Gaunt brilliantly argues that the culture of black girls is a critical influence on contemporary black popular culture. Had to read it for school.

Drawing on interviews, recordings of handclapping games and cheers, and her own observation and memories of gameplaying, Kyra D. Gaunt argues that black girls' games are connected to long traditions of African and African American musicmaking, and that they teach vital musical and social lessons that are carried into adulthood. This book presents an engaging reflexive narrative that ranges from childhood memories to involvement with ethnomusicological scholarship. Gaunt makes a convincing argument that the playsongs of African American girls is the foundation of African diasporic popular music-making.
In a radical counter-history, she shows how African American girls-interlocutors who are triply minoritized through race, gender, and age-are producing music culture that has profound influences on popular music and the popular imagination. She calls for an engaged ethnomusicology and moves gracefully through an array of anti-essentialist perspectives on race and gender.
