International House, Assembly Hall
America's Most Wanted: Hip-hop, the Media & the Prison Industrial Complex examines the prison crisis by placing two of America's most influential industries in the crosshairs: corporate-owned media and entertainment. From exploring trends in national news coverage to debating narratives that dominate hip-hop music and popular culture, a provocative panel of scholars, activists and artists will consider the ways these industries reinforce the status quo of mass incarceration. This forum will also scrutinize how various corporations beyond media and entertainment fuel what activists deem "the prison industrial complex." Visit the facebook event page here!
