Join Dr. Bruce Bridges for a performance and lecture on the Signifying Monkey, Toasts and the Humor Tradition in African-American Music. The term "Signifying Monkey" comes from a folk trickster figure said to have originated during slavery. In most narratives, the monkey dupes a powerful lion by "signifying": employing a speech pattern using connotative, contextbound words, the significance of which are accessible only to those who share unique and cultural values. In Henry Louis Gates' highly influential book, The Signifying Monkey, Gates expands the term to refer not merely to a specific vernacular strategy, but also to a trope of double-voiced repetition and reversal that exemplifies a distinguishing property of African- American discourse.Bruce Bridges is a life-long resident of Durham, North Carolina.
