RAP MUSIC ON TRIAL: Is Hip Hop a Target of Law Enforcement? Kemba and J.M. Harper from "As We Speak"

"As We Speak: Rap Music on Trial" is a documentary / dramatization currently airing on Paramount+. On this excerpt from the "Hip-Hop Can Save America!" Livestream Show, host Manny Faces delves deep into the intersection of hip hop, activism, and social justice with the film's director, J.M. Harper, and Bronx, NY-based rapper Kemba, who is the face of the documentary. This timely conversation underscores the genre's capacity to challenge stereotypes and address critical issues within the criminal justice system.
