Tuesday, March 1, 2022

Add to calendar

In the age of Black Lives Matter, the voices of Black women and girls need to be central to conversations about equity and social justice. Nearly every radical Black Feminist thinker and critic of the past two centuries has engaged with popular music and culture, from Angela Davis in Blues Legacies and Black Feminism to Tricia Rose, whose 1996 publication of Black Noise: Rap Music and Black Culture in Contemporary America laid the intellectual foundations for Hip Hop Studies. Listen Differently: Black Feminism, Music, and Popular Culture prioritizes Black feminist thought and criticism in the Arts and Humanities by welcoming one of its most innovative practitioners-- Tricia Rose-- to the SJSU campus for a keynote address and roundtable discussion.
