Monday, October 1, 2018: Hip Hop Feminism

Joan Morgan, Ohio State University Hip Hop Literacy Conference
In this segment we hear a brilliant talk by author and journalist Joan Morgan, who introduced the concept of "Hip-Hop Feminism" in her 1999 book, When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost. Her new book, She Begat This: 20 Years of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, looks not only at the impact of Hill's groundbreaking album, but at her significance to Black women, where Black women were in 1998 versus where they are today. In my favorite part of the talk, host Davey D says, "Can we put on the feminism hat for a minute," and Morgan says, "I never take off the feminism hat."

Women's Magazine never takes off our feminism hat. We are bringing you feminist analysis of today's news, yesterday's history, the books we read, the films we see, the music we hear, 52 weeks a year.  And we can only do it because of you.  Please give what you can at www.kpfa.org to help us keep bringing you powerful women's voices like Joan Morgan's.
