Rel 25. (AAS 25) Introduction to Black Religions and Hip-Hop (4)

Rapper KRS ONE once stated that, “Rap is something you do and Hip-Hop is something you live.”  This course thinks through the global evolution of Hip-Hop culture and the public and academic study of Black Religions as responses to structural and historical inequality and the search for meaning in culture by considering themes of resistance, constraint, power, the body, deviance, and morality over and against race, class, gender, and sexuality from a range of academic and cultural sources.
