If all art is political, what are the political, cultural, and societal implications of rap? What does rap convey about the state of society today? Using music as a catalyst for discussion, Rap 101 explores contemporary popular culture, diversity issues, and social justice through the lyrics of popular rap music. Sometimes called modern day poetry, rap is an integral part of modern culture. There is no question that music provides a social commentary. It has been said that if you want to understand what is going on in any community, listen to its music. Eric Davis facilitates a conversation with audiences about the dominant ideology found in mainstream news media and the status quo, to explore what we can do individually and societally to stimulate social change.  Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87554603296
