Center for the Study of Race and Democracy (CSRD) says
Jeff Chang, author of the seminal "Can’t Stop Won’t Stop," used hip-hop culture in his examination of America’s social and political history, and shows how hip-hop came to crystallize a multiracial generation's worldview. In his much anticipated follow-up, "Who We Be: The Colorization of America," Chang explores race and culture, tracing the rise of multiculturalism over the last three decades. He remixes comic strips and contemporary art, campus protests and corporate marketing campaigns, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Trayvon Martin into a powerful, unusual, and timely cultural history of the idea of racial progress. Jeff Chang brings fresh energy and style to the essential American story and tells a new and necessary people’s history.

This lecture includes a conversation with CSRD Board member Lasana O. Hotep, Dean of Student Success & Equity for the Peralta Community College District, a question/answer session with the audience, and will be followed by a book signing with Jeff Chang.
