La Verdad! A Look at Hip-Hop Latinidades and Identity

Melissa Castillo-Garsow and Dr. Jason Nichols joined us to discuss their latest anthology La Verdad: An International Dialogue on Hip Hop Latinidades.

And as promised, here are suggested links from Castillo-Garsow for further investigation:

One thought on “La Verdad! A Look at Hip-Hop Latinidades and Identity

  1. Definitely a dialogue: “we”is inclusive, as it has to be in Hip Hop. Our ears have all been there and for some of us our skin too. My Barrio listened to everything and we talked sh!t about each others music and flow. One love ❤️ ✌✌
