The show will play here, Sunday morning at 8:30am ET.
We will have two guests on our last show of 2023. Walter Greason and Tim Fielder. Walter has been on the show twice before. They recently collaborated on The Graphic History of Hip Hop, a graphic novel that is being used in schools to put Hip Hop in historical context. It’s a great follow-up to our discussion with Adrienne Green in August, reviewing The New York Times Magazine’s special report on the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop. Neil Parekh will be the guest host.
We will be live at 8:30am ET on Sunday morning on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and our Digimentors website. If you miss the live show, you can always watch it later, on demand. Click here for a .pdf of "The Graphic History of Hip Hop" (6 MB)
According to their website:
“Uniquely blending music, history, research, and art, The Graphic History of Hip Hop takes you on a journey of the music revolution that changed the world over the last half-century. From its roots in The Bronx to today’s game-changing artists, this beautiful one-of-a-kind graphic novel intertwines hip hop’s storied history, massive global appeal, and its extensive influence on culture, politics and economics into a new and innovative scholastic experience…”
“As the first in a series of graphic novels, The Graphic History of Hip Hop brings together a powerful blend of music, art and history with over sixty years of research from hundreds of professional historians and other scholars from the humanities and social sciences. The curriculum is uniquely designed to engage students as they will see, hear and experience how the world of Hip Hop evolved in response to the rapidly changing political and environments from the 1970s through the 2000s. This work is an essential resource to enhance modern urban and world history curriculums and create a unique and engaging classroom setting for students.”
