Anti-sexist activist and filmmaker, Byron Hurt, will speak about his film, “Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes” where he has taken an in-depth look at the representations of manhood and masculinity in mainstream hip-hop culture. He examines how creative genius, within mainstream hip-hop, collides with misogyny, violence and homophobia, exposing the complex implications these issues have in the construction of masculinity, especially among young people of color.
