Beautiful Struggle: Hip Hop's Role in the Trump Era

When: Fri., Feb. 17, 3 p.m. 2017

There are certain swaths of people who claim that there are no longer any good protest songs, that they died with the social movements of the sixties and seventies. Those people have never listened to any hip-hop. Talib Kweli, who’s in town for a two-night stand at Motorco, will discuss the role of hip-hop as contemporary protest music with Mark Anthony Neal, a renowned Duke scholar of African and African-American Studies. With two minds as sharp and insightful as theirs, this conversation is absolutely worth tuning in to. —Allison Hussey
