Screening of Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes (2006, 60 min)

February 24, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This film by Byron Hurt provides a riveting examination of manhood, sexism, and homophobia in hip-hop culture. Hurt—a former star college quarterback, longtime hip-hop fan, and gender violence education—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. To view the film and the discussion, you will need to log in to Kanopy using your WSU credentials.
