Hip-Hop: American Youth Culture At Home and Abroad
October 31, 2007
Hip-Hop is a transnational language of dissatisfaction and anger, but also of cultural resistance and cultural pride. Hip-Hop is considered an expression of youth culture, yet it has been around for more than 30 years and transcends generations. What does it tell us about youth culture in American and European society today? Can Hip-Hop play a positive role for social justice? How are we to understand the depictions of Hip-Hop culture in the mainstream media as a culture of self-destruction on the part of disenfranchised and excluded social groups?
