VIRTUAL: The Power of Image: The Genius of Hip Hop

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

THE GENIUS OF HIP HOP: Don't look now, but Hip Hop is a billion-dollar, cultural tour de force with mass market global appeal. The author of "The GENIUS of Hip Hop" shares insight on how something so controversial and marginal could become so mainstream and central. Q&A to follow. Anaheim Public Library is pleased to present a series of presentations on the Power of Image. So much of what we think we know about BIPOC individuals in our society is mediated through mainstream media, which generates images for widespread consumption. The question is: are these images within proportion or within distortion? Join author and university professor Dr. Frederick Gooding, Jr., better known as Dr G., as he leads this illuminating, four-part virtual series on the power of image. Register in advance!
