When A.D. Carson presented his 34-song rap album as his dissertation at Clemson, his songs went viral. Carson, now a professor of hip-hop at the University of Virginia, uses music to explore identity, language, citizenship and justice. In this webinar Carson will discuss his album, Owning My Masters: The Rhetorics of Rhymes and Revolutions, and hip-hop as a cultural movement.
