Event: Hip Hop Music Video Panel Discussion . Date: Thursday February 18th, 2010
Where: The Broad Art Center Auditorium Rm. 2160e (Capacity of 400)
"In an effort to educate the UCLA and greater Los Angeles community on issues pertaining to the representation of women, African Americans, and the greater hip hop culture, Hip Hop Congress will host a panel discussion that thoroughly examines the underlying social messages embedded within hip hop music videos. Many are aware of the stereotypes that are perpetuated in these videos but few are actually willing to deliberate and converse about them. Striving to promote edutainment (education + entertainment), the discussion will be formatted to watch different clips and compilation-footage of hip hop music videos throughout history and then spark a discourse about the social, cultural, and political undertones embedded within the videos.
