Hip Hop’s Li’l Sistas Speak: Negotiating Identities and Politics in the New South

Event date: 
Saturday, January 12, 2013 - 12:30am to 2:00am

Dr. Bettina Love will discuss her latest book, Hip Hop’s Li’l Sistas Speak: Negotiating Identities and Politics in the New South. She will focus on how young women in Atlanta, GA navigate the space of Hip Hop music and culture to form ideas concerning race, body, class, inequality and privilege. The text focuses on how the city’s social conservative politics, urban gentrification, race relations, Southern flavored Hip Hop music and culture, and booming adult entertainment industry rest in the periphery of young Black girls' coming of age.

This is a Charis Circle Founding the Future of Feminism Program and the suggested donation is $5.
