Dr. James Peterson chats no-holds barred with DJ Rich Medina to discuss the necessity of a Hip-hop archive, cultural appropriation and Medina’s evolution as a DJ/artist. Excellent talk discussing music as an outlet, his scholastic approach and his upbringing in Philadelphia.
Each week, “The Remix with Dr. James Peterson” takes a fresh look at how race, culture and politics intersect. Peterson, director of Africana Studies and associate professor of English at Lehigh University, will talk to people who are not necessarily in the mainstream news cycle, but who are driving opinions, news and movements through media platforms new and old.
Peterson is a graduate of Duke University and the University of Pennsylvania, and the founder of Hip Hop Scholars, Inc., an association of hip hop generational scholars dedicated to researching and developing the cultural and educational potential of hip hop, urban, and youth cultures.
