What Ice Cube’s Song “Endangered Species” Meant for Four Generations of Black Males
Taking inspiration from Public Enemy's lead vocalist Chuck D - who once declared that 'rap is the CNN of young Black America' - this volume brings together leading legal commentators to make sense of some of the most pressing law and policy issues in the context of hip-hop music and the ongoing struggle for Black equality. Written to 'say it plain', this collection will be valuable not only to students and scholars of law, African-American studies, and hip-hop, but also to everyone who cares about creating a more just society.
Includes Maurer Professor Kevin Brown’s chapter, “What Ice Cube’s "Endangered Species" Meant for Four Generations of Black Males,” co-authored with Robert Pervine.
