Critical Hip Hop Studies: Hope, Possibility, and Resistance

A presentation with Dr. Daymond Glenn, visiting assistant professor and assistant director of Teaching for Excellence.


This talk will discuss how hip-hop culture can offer sites of hope, possibility, and resistance against the social and structural marginalization that Black males face in urban America. Additionally, this talk will discuss how mainstream hip-hop culture (i.e., rap music) has been coopted, commodified, commercialized, and corrupted by corporate elites who sell Blackness back to the consumer in a degrading, dysfunctional, and pathological form, which then becomes the baseline for how Black identity is formed, negotiated, understood, and reproduced in the larger public sphere.



5:00 PM in MILLER 105


Co-sponsored by Ethnic Studies, IME (Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement), and SOAN.
