AADS 2262 Gospel According to Hip Hop (Spring: 3 )
This course will examine the history of hip hop pioneers and their media as it developed on the stage of American history, and then follow hip hop as it emerged as the most powerful force in popular culture in the world. We will then examine the assumptions of homogeneity within the black community of the 20th Century and consider the future of this community that now has disintegrated from "one black America" into four: The Mainstream, The Transcendent, the Emergent and the Abandoned.
