While other books have adopted either a literary approach to the language, poetry, and arts of these movements or a historical analysis of them, Ongiris captures the cultural and political interconnections of the postwar period by using an interdisciplinary methodology drawn from cinema studies and music theory.

She traces the emergence of this Black aesthetic from its origin in the Black Power movements emphasis on the creation of visual icons and the Black Arts movements celebration of urban vernacular culture.
