Powertalk met Greg Tate & Rich Medina

Get in the mix with Greg Tate and Rich Medina. Our hiphop family keeps blessing us with more talks in our Powertalk series. On October 15 we host a conversation between these two heavyweights. What a way to spend a Tuesday afternoon!

Greg Tate is a musician, writer and black culture theorist. He wrote for VIBE magazine and the Village Voice. His books include ‘What White People Are Taking From Black Culture’ and ‘Flyboy In The Buttermilk, Everything But The Burden’. Greg is a professor at Yale, Columbia, Brown, NYU, Princeton and San Francisco State University.

Rich Medina is DJ, producer and lecturer. He takes his audiences on journeys through music culture including hip-hop, house, soul, afrobeat, funk, breaks and dance classics. Rich collaborated with artists like Jill Scott and J Dilla and contributed to a wide variety of publications, including The Fader, Complex and Wax Poetics. He frequently teaches at Cornell University and Academy of Dance and Theatre in Amsterdam. Last year he visited HipHopHuis for our first Powertalk called ‘Beyond the Elements’.

Andrew Makkinga is our moderator, the focus of the talk is stamina: How to build a durable practice in HipHop culture? How do we keep growing and continue to change the game while staying sane?
