Details

Join The Toronto Women's Bookstore for a free talk with Canada's foremost expert on hip hop culture: Dalton Higgins.

Why have women's stories become obscure, rarely mentioned footnotes in rap lore? And why do a few select rap temptresses get all the glory? Is hip hop the last bastion of heterosexuality in the music industry? And does LGBT living exist on a separate island from hip hop?

Hip hop culture journalist Dalton Higgins explores these and other questions, taking his analysis beyond North American parameters to consider the social and political uses of hip hop around the globe.

Featuring an a cappella performance by a local female hip hop artist.
