The York College Male Initiative Program is proud to sponsor a Town Hall Meeting on, "Hip Hop - A House Divided"

This town hall meeting will examine polar opposites within the hip-hop movement and culture: the generational divide between the originators and current artists; the lyrical divide between the socially conscious and the “keepin’it real” factions; and the socio-political divide between young adults of the 1960s and young adults of the new millennium.  The forum features three panels moderated by award-winning journalist, Peter Noel.  Some of the notables appearing on the panel are Mele Mel, Grandmaster Caz, James Mtume, Dr. Ron Daniels, Erica Ford, L.A. Sunshine, Keith Murray.

There will be three panel discussions:

Panel One: The Generational Divide - "Turn that music down or turn that music up - Old School vs. New School."

Panel Two: The Lyrical Divide - "The Message in the music - Past, Present, and Future."

Panel Three: The Socio-Politcal Divide - "A Comparison of the Socio-Political Consciousness of the Baby Boomers and the Hip Hop Generation."

Panelists include: Mele Mel, Grandmaster Caz, James Mtume, LA Sunshine, Dr. Ron Daniels, and more.

Moderator: Award winning journalist and radio personality Peter Noel.
