Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes: A Film by Byron Hurt (2006, 60 min)
January 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This documentary provides a riveting examination of manhood, sexism, and homophobia in hip-hop culture. Director Byron Hurt, former star college quarterback, longtime hip-hop fan, and gender violence prevention educator, conceived the documentary as a “loving critique” of a number of disturbing trends in the world of rap music. He pays tribute to hip-hop while challenging the rap music industry to take responsibility for glamorizing destructive, deeply conservative stereotypes of manhood. Hosted by the Office of Outreach and Education.
