“I’m a Little Black Boy and I Don’t Know My Place”: Phil Lynott and the Black Atlantic


Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)


This essay uses Paul Gilroy’s The Black Atlantic to examine Phil Lynott, of ’70s Irish hard rock band Thin Lizzy. Lynott’s “mixed” lineage (half Caribbean black, half Irish) relates to Gilroy’s black diaspora in terms of parentage and popular music the latter being central to Gilroy’s argument about the articulation of black experience of trauma and dislocation in creative and other forms.
