Black music has served as a resistance mechanism for African Americans throughout their history in the United States. Keeping in the tradition of music as a resistance mechanism, Hip-Hop culture has continued to fight against injustices and for political and social rights through the music and by using previously successful political models.  This talk will discuss ways in which you can incorporate Hip-Hop culture to discuss issues of social justice domestically and internationally.
