Msia Kibona Clark, assistant professor of African Studies at Howard University, examines the historical roots of hip-hop culture as part of the flow of black music between the continent and the diaspora and the use of hip-hop as a creative tool for challenging political institutions, social problems, and gender norms— including immigration, feminism, economic disparity.
Clark’s newly released book, Hip-Hop in Africa: Prophets of the City and Dustyfoot Philosophers (2018), is available for purchase.
«Hip-Hop in Africa is a tribute to a genre and its artists as well as a timely examination that pushes the study of music and diaspora in critical new directions.» —Akosua Adomako Ampofo
