JEFF CHANG: Can't Stop Won't Stop
An in-depth history of the Hip-Hop Generation


Jeff Chang has been a hip-hop journalist for more than 15 years and has written for Vibe, Spin, The village Voice, URB and Rap Pages. Chang will speak about Can't Stop Won't Stop, his book that shows how hip-hop came to crystallize a multiracial generation's worldview. How does it define the lives of millions around the world? How has it transformed politics and art? And how did it redefine the portrayal of race in popular culture? He draws on economics, social theory and demographics to trace the tumultuous period in which hip-hop came to life – a time when the post-civil rights generation moved from out of the margins and into the mainstream.
