Preview of ATR Premium 11: Natalie Hopkinson

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Addicted to Race Premium is the premium version of New Demographic’s podcast about America’s obsession with race.

Since this is the public RSS feed, you will receive just a 15-minute preview of the interview.

How have our ideas about black masculinity been shaped by hip hop? Will Barack Obama bring forth a new archetype of black masculinity? How do these ideas of masculinity help or harm black women? I’ll be interviewing Natalie Hopkinson, co-author of Deconstructing Tyrone: A New Look at Black Masculinity in the Hip-Hop Generation, about all of these issues.
