Just got back from a reading at Nkiru Center by Bakari Kitwana from his new book, Hip Hop Generation. It’s a very important book (you can check my review of it here). Bakari is now getting a chance to take his message across the country, and is finding that the main question everyone is asking him is: “Where do we go from here?”

The act of him holding dialogues in various cities itself is crucial–he is literally creating spaces to discuss and debate hip-hop activism, something folks both really want and need. Bakari admits he doesn’t have all the answers, but says the important thing is to begin to build networks. Maybe everyone’s answers to the little questions can add up to some answers to all of the big ones. He’s echoing the exact same sentiments we heard on Wednesday at OSI. If you get a chance to hear him speak, definitely do it. Either way, cop the book.
