In this debate-format exploration of the most polarizing topics in hip hop, we'll examine the intersection of urban culture and American values. Does hip hop glorify violence, or simply reflect the reality of urban poverty? Should society censor homophobic and sexist music? Who should be allowed to use the n-word? Is hip hop dead, or has there been a renaissance of creativity in recent years? We'll examine the toughest questions facing hip hop as a way to discuss significant social issues related to race, social class, sexuality, and gender. Classes will feature guest faculty from other universities, hip hop artists, and members of the Ithaca community.
