From NPR’s Bullseye with Jesse Thorn:
About ten years ago, Jeff Chang published his book Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: The History of the Hip-Hop Generation. His new book is a sort of follow-up — it chronicles some of the cultural and racial shifts we’ve experienced as a nation. It’s called Who We Be: The Colorization of America.
Chang talks to us about what “diversity” means to us today, the struggle for artists to defy racial categorization, and how and why corporations embraced multiculturalism.
