Message In The Music
HIP HOP History & Pedagogy
Edited by: Derrick P. Alridge, James B. Stewart, and V.P. Franklin

Message in the Music brings together wide-ranging,
critical, and detailed essays that examine Hip Hop as
one of the most influential cultural phenomena of the
past half-century. Written by historians, social scientists,
literary critics, and educators, the essays examine the
current state of Hip Hop, investigate its historical and
philosophical linkages to previous African American social
and cultural movements, and explore the ways it may
be employed as an emancipatory pedagogy for youth in
the United States and around the world. By
re-engaging ongoing debates in Hip Hop while offering
fresh insights from young scholars across a variety of
disciplines and perspectives, this collection has much to
offer academics, students, teachers, and parents.
