Black Lives Matter and Hip Hop Homophobia: Batari Kitwana
Start Date: 2/17/2016Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 2/17/2016End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Bakari Kitwana is a youth empowerment activist and author of The Hip Hop Generation, an eloquent testament for black youth culture at the turn of the century. The only in-depth account of the first generation to grow up in post-segregation America, it combines culture and politics into a pivotal work in American studies. Bakari Kitwana, one of black America's sharpest young critics, offers a sobering look at this generation's disproportionate social and political troubles and celebrates the activism and politics that may herald the beginning of a new phase of African-American empowerment.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Africana Studies.
