The African American Studies program & the Office of Equity & Diversity are hosting a hip-hop panel titled "Message in the Music: Hip Hop Generational Soundtracks." The event will take place at the Edge of Chaos on February 14, 2017, at 6:00 PM.

Drawing from Frantz Fanon's statement "every generation, out of relative obscurity, must find its mission, fulfill it or betray it," panelists will explore some of the messages in hip hop across time. Our discussion will be guided by the thesis that music is an expression of life. Panelists include:
  • Dr. Nyesha Black, Department of Sociology
  • Martez Files
  • Melodi Stone
  • Andrew Baer


The Edge of Chaos is located in Lister Hill Library at 1700 University Boulevard.
