Lecture: Mark Lomax

The year 2015 was a landmark one for hip-hop artists Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole who made headlines by making artistic statements aligning them with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Despite the success seen by both artists, it seems that the majority of well known African American musicians have been reluctant to make similar statements. After a brief overview of how music was used by blacks in America as a means of resistance, Lomax will address the possible sociocultural and political implications of using black music as an expression of positive black cultural identity and black power in the age of #BlackLivesMatter. Part of the ALANA Student Leadership Conference.
