Representing from the Author: S. Craig Watkins. In this engaging and provocative book, S. Craig Watkins examines two of the most important developments in the recent history of black cinema—the ascendancy of Spike Lee and the proliferation of "ghettocentric films." Representing explores a distinct contradiction in American society: at the same time that black youth have become the targets of a fierce racial backlash, their popular expressive cultures have become highly visible and commercially viable. "Watkins is at his most sophisticated and persuasive when he explains the surprising success of hyper-talented, entrepreneurial, and energetic black artists."—Archon Fung, Boston Book Review

Hip Hop E from the Author: Bradley J. Porfilio. <B>This book won the 2014 AESA (American Educational Studies Association) Critics Choice Award.<BR><BR> Illuminating hip-hop as an important cultural practice and a global social movement, this collaborative project highlights the emancipatory messages and cultural work generated by the organic intellectuals of global hip-hop. Contributors describe the social realities - globalization, migration, poverty, criminalization, and racism - youth are resisting through what we recognize as a decolonial cultural politic. The book contributes to current scholarship in multicultural education, seeking to understand the vilification of youth (of color) for the social problems created by a global system that benefits a small minority. In an age of corporate globalization, <I>Hip-Hop(e) highlights the importance of research projects that link the production of educational scholarship with the cultural activities, everyday practice, and social concerns of global youth in order to ameliorate social, economic, and political problems that transcend national boundaries.

Stand And Deliver from the Author: Yvonne Bynoe. The phrases ?hip hop” and ?activism” aren't always heard together, but it's a marriage that must be made if black empowerment is to succeed. In Stand and Deliver, Bynoe eloquently advocates replacing charismatic but ineffectual black leaders who beg for crumbs from the white power structure with ?citizen-leaders” who actively engage in a policy-centered relationship with that structure. Bynoe shows how hip hoppers can create a more sophisticated dialogue about what constitutes leadership, politics, and political action. This understanding, she argues, comes from influence, and influence comes from the ability to deliver ? or deny ? money, votes, or both to a political candidate, legislator, or political party. In the words of MC Lyte, all the rest is ?chitter chatter.”

Politique Du Hip Hop from the Author: Loïc Lafargue de Grangeneuve. Née aux Etats-Unis, la culture hip-hop (rap, danse hip-hop, graffiti...) s'est fortement développée en France, qui est devenue sa seconde patrie. Dans le cadre de la politique de la ville, les autorités politiques ont soutenu de multiples projets liés à cette mouvance artistique, afin de faire émerger des modèles de réussite pour les jeunes habitants des quartiers dits " sensibles ". A partir d'une enquête réalisée à Bordeaux et à Marseille, l'auteur met au jour la généalogie de cette action publique et examine sa mise en œuvre. Il montre les tensions sous-jacentes au processus de légitimation artistique du hip-hop et explore la dimension politique de cette culture. Car si les acteurs du hip-hop sont avides de reconnaissance, ils redoutent aussi les effets de l'instrumentalisation dont leur mouvement est l'objet...
