Through its language, sonics, and artistic community, Hip-Hop has produced a world for its artists to communicate the experience of the underground of US American life and critique the genocidal conditions faced by its people. This dialog and performance will explore the status of Hip-Hop as a subjugated knowledge whose wisdom is often obscured by its commercialization and the limits of audiences' sensibilities. We will discuss what Hip-Hop can tell us about the failure of scholars and the public to take black aesthetics seriously, the criminalization of black people, and how the art can be used as a source of spiritual resilience in conditions of anti-black violence. We hope that our dialog can foster further dialog between communities in the United States and Germany.
