Brown Bag Discussion - Book Read: Fight the Power: Rap, Race and Reality

Monday, February 16

Time: 12 p.m. — 1 p.m.

Location: Office of Multicultural Affairs (Alumni 101)

Like the hard-hitting sounds of a Public Enemy jam, the words of the band's lead singer, Chuck D, excite the mind and senses. In his first book, Chuck D pours out commentary that takes on Hollywood, race, the music industry, the murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G., drugs, and the three E's--education, economics and enforcement. Likening the challenge to "scaling a slick mountain on roller skates," Chuck D lets no one off the hook, putting celebrities and street kids alike on notice that the future is up for grabs...and the only way to be part of it, to be players not victims, is to work together. This discussion will be led by Dr. Tom Morgan form the English Department.

A limited number of copies of the book are available. Please contact Carlos Stewart ( to reserve a copy.
