Barkley L. Hendricks: a Black pop artist?

This essay was written in 2011 when I was a student.

I’d planned to publish it as it was, but sadly, Barkley L. Hendricks passed away earlier in 2017, leading me to question whether to update it or not to reflect this. I decided to keep the essay as it was, written in the present tense, but the context of its writing should be borne in mind.
