Du Bois 'n The Hood: Choreographer Kyle Abraham's Pavement
"For [the piece], he went back to 1991, to reimagine the film Boyz 'n the Hood,
about gangs in South Central Los Angeles, which was released that summer. ... He also wanted to look at the history that had preceded the strife represented in [that film] and found a pertinent source in The Souls of Black Folk,
the 1903 book by W. E. B. Du Bois."
