Center For The Interdisciplinary Pursuit of Hip Hop Elevation & Research - Inaugural Conference

Friday, May 1, 2020 - 10:00am to 9:00pm

California State University, Northridge

From its outset, Hip-hop has been a global phenomenon. The music translated without translation. It spoke and speaks to and for many. This inaugural conference raises questions and promotes discussion not about the impact of hip-hop but about its capacity to build community at local, national, and global levels. It is examined at political, social, commercial, and artistic vantage points.
