Tricia Rose on "Hip Hop, Mass Media and Racial Storytelling in the Age of Obama"

On October 22, 2012 at the University of Texas, Tricia Rose, professor of Africana Studies at Brown University, discusses hip hop's retreat from politics and the potential for that music to help tell the stories of the dispossessed today. Rose is author of the ground-breaking 1994 book Black Noise: Rap Music and Black Culture in Contemporary America, Longing To Tell: Black Women Talk About Sexuality and Intimacy, and The Hip Hop Wars: What We Talk About When We Talk About Hip Hop--and Why It Matters. http://www.triciarose.com/index.shtml
