In this session of The Look Back, we will be listening backwards through the history of Hip-Hop. Using our ears and voices to deconstruct the ever-changing sound of this Black American art form. Remember when Hip-Hop was urban music? How about when folks burned your favorite MC's CDs on the evening news? What every your answer was, this is the right class for you! Join us on "The Look Back" to rediscover the lineage of Hip-Hop.
