Dead Precedents: LAUNCH PARTY

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us to celebrate the launch of Roy Christopher’s Dead Precedents: How Hip-Hop Defines the Future.

Praise for Dead Precedents:

“It’s exciting to be quoted so close to the beginning of a book with so much energy and passion in it… a lively screed.” — Samuel R. Delany, author of Dhalgren

“Hip-hop has been around for well over forty years now, and in many ways, it has been absorbed into mainstream culture. Roy Christopher argues, however, that its radical practices still contain untapped possibilities. Dead Precedents shows how this cultural movement opens new hope for the future by changing our understanding of the past.” — Steven Shaviro, author of Discognition

“An intellectual hornet’s nest, buzzing with ideas. The canon of hip-hop crit welcomes a bold new entry, calculated to blow the doors off the usual moribund academic fare. Theory finds its own uses for things.” — Mark Dery, author of I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts
