Mazi Mutafa, the Executive Director of Words Beats & Life, will be coming to AU to discuss the state of Hip Hop scholarship, leaders in the Hip Hop scholarship community, and seminal books in the field. As we know, Hip Hop was rooted in activism and so much more than just music. It was a way to educate and empower people through the music, and now,  Universities all over the country are acknowledging this, as evidence through their Hip Hop archives and libraries; books, journals, and documentaries; courses and curricula; and innumerable homages to Hip Hop’s legacy. Mazi will be addressing these topics and well as the important events and initiatives in Hip Hop scholarship, community service and his organization, Words Beats & Life.
