Have you ever wondered where Hip Hop came from? What contributed to its conception? What are Hip Hop’s cultural roots and where do some of them come from? What active role has the mainstream corporate media played in suppressing Hip Hop’s most progressive and radical voices? If these questions interest you, this event is definitely for you. This lecture will not only educate you about the roots of Hip Hop, it will educate you on the Mass Media and on African/Black History.
