Culture is a key aspect of the development of a nation. This is also true of Afro-Americans as a distinct nationality. Its development reflects the similarities and differences between Black people and the entire society. It also reflects the similarities and differences - especially differences based on class - that exist among different groups of Black people. Culture (in form and content) is historical and Black culture is no exception. Just as the historical stages of the Black experience reflect changes in the mode of material (economic) production, so cultural change reflects changes in the mode of cultural production. In other words, similar factors are involved in how Black culture is produced: What technology is used? What numbers of people with what kinds of skills are involved? Who owns what? And who works for or with whom? The mode of cultural production is thus dependent on the mode of material production. Furthermore, the historical development of Black culture reflects the same historical periods as all other aspects of the Black experience. It is especially important to begin with Africa.
