HIPHOP & POLTICS:
Can the two work together for the good of the people?
Join us on Thursday, July 31, 2008 for the forum “HIPHOP AND POLITICS: Can the two work together for the good of the community?” This will be held at the Jackson Enterprise Center (931 HWY W. * Jackson, MS),6-8p.m.
Panelists include recording artists Eddie Wright, Big Pap, Jokah the General, radio show host Berlinda White, community activists Valencia Robinson and Shontale Watson, Attorney Martin Perkins and more!
Issues to be discussed include 1) Should we care what entertainers think about issues if we are to separate what they say from what they do? 2) How can the hiphop community best use their influence for the good of the community? 3) What can elected officials do to encourage the hiphop community’s support? 4) Is the voice of the hiphop community incorrectly swaying perception about the Presidential candidates and their positions? 5) At the end of the day who should have more influence, the leaders of the hiphop community or the head of the household?
This 4th installment of discussions focusing on the power of Hiphop will be moderated by Hiphop and Books Founder C. A. Webb. Admission free.
