Let Me Blow Your Mind: Hip Hop Feminist Futures in Theory and Praxis
Lindsey, Treva B.
Urban Education, v50 n1 p52-77 Jan 2015
This essay brings together key theoretical interventions in hip-hop feminism to explore the continued, but undervalued, significance of hip-hop feminism in urban education. More specifically, the essay challenges narrow conceptualizations of the "hip hop subject" as Black and male by using hip-hop feminist theory to incorporate the lived experiences of Black and Brown girls and women. With a particular emphasis on the realities of violence Black and Brown girls and women, trans*, and queer people confront, I argue for the incorporation of hip hop feminism as a social justice theory and praxis in urban education.
