Know-The-Ledge: Hiphop Scholarship Meets Hiphop Media
The Hiphop Archive at Stanford University hosted: Know-The-Ledge: Hiphop Scholarship Meet Hiphop Media on March 4, 2006. Over sixty of Hiphop’s most influential scholars, educators, journalists, and artists whose work focuses on some aspect of hiphop art and culture met to discuss the relationship and conflicts between academic and journalistic reporting, writing and representation of Hiphop. The meeting directly addressed and identified some of pressing issues that determine how we research and present information about youth who are asserting themselves as they influence and alter our notion of the importance of creative arts, politics, society and culture.
