PAAFF Presents: Reflections on the Evolution of Asian Cultural Influences in the Hip Hop Community
The discussion will cover the influence of Asian cinema, culture and ethos on hip hop, the roots of hip hop from Black culture, it's cross over to other groups of color and it's existing racial divide between those communities, the exoticization of (Asian) women, and transcending the notions of a 'model minority'. The individuals brought together will illuminate that hip hop is a culture that continues to articulate the joy in existence but also a desire for a different world.
The panel will be streamed LIVE through PhillyCAM and can be viewed at phillycam.org/livestream.
This panel is in dedication to the late Fred Ho (1957-2014).
