Summary
Rap, Race & Equality captures the essence of the cultural phenomenon of rap music during its formative years in the early 1990s when it exploded onto the world stage. The film is an important historical document featuring rap's most influential and controversial artists such as Ice Cube, Ice T, and Queen Latifah who have become international media stars. The film unmasks the issues behind the music, such as racism, sexism, economic and social inequality, and cultural identity. Rappers speak openly and passionately about their music and the attitude their words embody. Media commentators Jon Pareles of the New York Times and Dr. Tricia Rose provide illuminating insight into the music's cultural and political significance. They suggest that rap music flows out of the African storytelling tradition. Rap artists have fostered a greater cultural awareness and sense of pride in young African-Americans. Indeed, the rhythm and energy are the heartbeat of a new generation around the world
