Bakari Kitwana joined us this week for a “debate” on the meaning of “hip-hop activism.” What is “hip-hop” as a community, a generation and what is this “hip-hop activism” leading us toward? To which political genealogy is that community attempting to connect, extend, exemplify? What is the ideology of this community and what methods is it to deploy is achieving its ideological ends? We chopped some of this up and were later joined by Skipp Coon and members of the listening audience.
