CRES 072B: Elements and Cultures of Hip Hop

Units: 4

From its early stages marked by spirit and struggles localized marginalized communities, hip-hop has grown into an international billion-dollar business and an undeniable element of mainstream american culture. While gaining knowledge about historical developments — its origins in urban Black and Latino communities, its reverberations in other parts of the US and the world — our critique and reflection will focus on analyzing the successes and pitfalls of the movement in dealing with socio-political issues ingrained into the genre: race, gender and sexual identities.
