Product description

Home Girls Make Some Noise: Hip Hop Feminist Anthology seeks to complicate understandings of Hip-Hop as a male space by including and identifying the women who were always involved with the culture. The anthology explores Hip-Hop as a worldview, as an epistemology grounded in the experiences of communities of color under advanced capitalism, as a cultural site for rearticulating identity and sexual politics. With critical essays, cultural critiques, interviews, personal narratives, fiction, poetry, and artwork. The contributors are varied, from women working within the Hip-Hop sphere, Hip-Hop feminists and activists "on the ground," as well as scholars, writers, and journalists.
