Hip-Hop On Trial Discussion and Debating

Original release 2012

Is hip-hop the authentic voice of the oppressed that turns anger into poetry and political action? Or is it a glorification of all that holds back oppressed minorities and hinders them from mainstream assimilation? Rappers such as KRS-One, ?uestlove, Q-Tip and Estelle, and renowned US hip-hop intellectuals such as Touré, Michael Eric Dyson, Tricia Rose and dream hampton discuss, joined by civil rights campaigner Jesse Jackson, once a critic and now in the hip-hop camp.
