It sounds great at the club, but what can hip hop teach us about youth culture, about history, about the world? This course explores all aspects of hip hop culture: its journey from underground subculture to the global business, from its visual aesthetics to its gender politics. Whether you represent the old school or you're new to the game, you'll come away with a deeper appreciation for an American art form.
