Watch "Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes" Lecture featuring Chuck D


""Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes" provides a riveting examination of manhood, sexism, and homophobia in hip-hop culture. Director Byron Hurt, former college quarterback and gender violence prevention educator, pays tribute to hip-hop while challenging the rap music industry to take responsibility for glamorizing destructive stereotypes of manhood. The documentary features revealing interviews about masculinity and sexism with rappers such as Mos Def, Chuck D, and Busta Rhymes, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, and cultural commentators such as Michael Eric Dyson and Beverly Guy-Shetfall. Acclaimed for its fearless engagement with issues of race, gender violence, and the corporate exploitation of youth culture." - the Carsey-Wolf Center

The screening was followed by a Q&A with guests Director/Activist Byron Hurt and Chuck D from the band "Public Enemy" which you'll see above.
