Gender & Hip Hop Community Dialogue

This past weekend, Bakari Kitwana, Mark Anthony Neal, Joan Morgan, Tracy Sharpley-Whiting, and Byron Hurt came together at the University of Chicago for a special event, "Does Hip Hop Hate Women?" Presented by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture in conjunction with a number of other organizations, this panel discussion and community forum mulled over a critical issue that deserves greater attention--especially from those who make the music, and those who listen to it. If you have a second, check the Chicago Tribune (includes video footage) and MSNBC for reports on how it went.

Thanks to Theresa Mah for the heads up on this.

I'm very interested in hearing about any solutions or ideas the panelists had for remedying this problem. Is there anyone out there who attended the program that can fill me in on what was proposed?
