Taking the concept of hip hop and applying it beyond the genre has opened my mind in several ways. Firstly, using hip hop to describe different historical movements has shed light on many contemporary activist collectives. Now knowing the genesis of different feminisms and sounds I hear on the radio are all because of hip hop. Moreover, I know have a more multi-faceted view on Black feminisms in general, being able to explore and delve even deeper to a passion of mine. Lastly, before this course I was only able to see race in hip hop in a purely one-dimensional way; not being privy to complex race relations rooted in authenticity within the music industry. In conclusion, I believe that I stand at a more seasoned and less ignorant position within the cipher that has enhanced my feminist paradigm.
