A great discussion panel is being held tonight at Marquette on Hip Hop culture.  Here are the details:

Date: Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Time: 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Place: Emory Clark Hall,  Room 111

530 N. 16th St.

The Department of Social and Cultural Sciences at Marquette University will host a panel discussion about the hip-hop generation Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 5 p.m. in Emory Clark Hall, room 111, located at 530 N. 16th Street.

Wrapped up in the hip-hop culture are clues about race, class, capitalism, globalization and the rise in the rate of incarceration of African-American men over the last 20 years.  Four panel members from three different academic institutions – Jerry Gafio Watts, Jooyoung Lee, Hank Williams and Erin Winkler – will explore these issues and how they are affecting race relations in Milwaukee and around the country.

The discussion is being facilitated by Robert Turner, Marquette University’s 2009-10 Arnold L. Mitchem Dissertation Fellow, a doctoral candidate completing his dissertation on the lives of NFL players.
