Hip-Hop and a Hybrid Text in a Postsecondary English Class
Sanchez, Deborah M.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v53 n6 p478-487 Mar 2010
This study explores the epistemology present in hip-hop music and its reflection in the writing of one African American student in a postsecondary transitional English class. An integration of hip-hop and academic literacy practices in the student's essay challenges the supremacy of a "standard" academic English and deficit perspectives about African American language and rhetorics.
