AAST 215 - I’m That Gworl: The Intersection of Black Women and Queerness in Hip-Hop

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
From its inception, hip-hop has helped to showcase some of the most important rap talent in the United States. This history has given us legendary women rappers such as Queen Latifah and Foxy Brown and helped create new superstars such as Megan Thee Stallion and Doechii. The history of hip-hop, however, has always had a complicated relationship with its women performers and queer performers. In this course, we will examine the different ways in which Black women rappers and Black Queer rappers have carved out their own lane of empowerment and respect within the hip-hop community while simultaneously examining the ways in which these two groups have helped to influence the dominant hip-hop culture and society at large.

This course is appropriate for new students.
