"Women have always been right there on the front lines in Hip Hop, adding our flavor to what the men are doing and making it our own. B-girlz have been holding it down from the jump. It's good to see them finally getting the recognition they deserve with >We B*Girlz<." (Missy Elliott). In 1985, B-Boys were all the rage, but where were the girls? Fast-forward twenty years for the answer: >We B*Girlz<, a lively look at the hot and happenin' world of B-Girlz of the twenty-first century as documented by photographer Martha Cooper and writer Nika Kramer. Breaking is back with a new twist as today's stylish fly girls can battle the best of them. Featuring pioneering B-Girlz like Rokafella from the Bronx, who now dances professionally, and Asia-One from L.A., who organized and promoted the B-Boy Summit for ten years, >We B*Girlz< - the first handbook for accomplished or aspiring B-Girlz and the boys who admire them - showcases the dynamic style and nonstop energy of B-Girlz in action, in practice, and on stage. Providing inspiring insight into a previously little-known subculture that has swept the world, >We B*Girlz< includes chapters on Herstory, Girlz n'Crewz, B-Boys, Floor Warz, We B-Family, We B-Stylin', B-Girl Careers, and B-Girl resources, including information on websites, gear, events, competitions, and classes.
