“On Hip Hop, Race and Politics: The Way we Talk about Things”
Jay Smooth, Hip hop culture critic, Ill Doctrine; and radio host, the Underground Railroad on WBAI 99.5 FM
University Center Ballroom

The annual Daphne Harrison Lecture is sponsored by Critical Social Justice, the Women’s Center; The Mosaic: Center for Culture and Diversity of the Division of Student Life; the Department of Africana Studies; and the Dresher Center for the Humanities.

In this talk, socio-political pundit Jay Smooth, the popular blogger behind Ill Doctrine, discusses everything from present-day politics and social justice to music, media, and culture. Smooth delves into the oftentimes-tricky discussion of race, specifically how we talk about race and racism as a culture, sharing thought-provoking, humorous, and entertaining suggestions for expanding our worldview on the subject. Jay Smooth is host of New York’s longest running hip-hop radio show, the Underground Railroad on WBAI 99.5 FM, and is an acclaimed commentator on politics and culture.

Admission is free.
