One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide
Who is the I?: Shifting the Hip-Hop Framework on Sexuality and Identity
University of DC, Building 41, Room A-03
4200 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


Long known for its heterosexual overtones, hip-hop in the 21st century is being challenged to come into a more realistic understanding of shifting sexual norms, specifically as it relates to heteronormativity, racial identity, and gender roles in hip-hop. How does the fan's proximity to black masculinity enable or restrict her or his access to hip-hop culture? The discussion explores the monuments and myths at the intersection of sex, race, and gender performance in hip-hop and discusses the hegemony, the alienation, and the fierce forms of expression that are emerging out of this space.

This event is FREE, no tickets required.

This event, produced by Lil SoSo, is recognized as part of the Kennedy Center's One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide festival.
