Bob O'Meally's Antagonistic Cooperation: Jazz, Collage, and the Shaping of African American Culture has been published by Columbia University Press.
“Ever lively and cautiously optimistic, Antagonistic Cooperation is a moving revival of jazz-democracy discourse in downbeat times. O’Meally passes on a lifetime of tales and insights, vivid and learned, revealing rhymes among Black music, African American writing, and American political thought.”
William J. Maxwell, author of F. B. Eyes: How J. Edgar Hoover’s Ghostreaders Framed African American Literature
