Editorial Reviews

Review

«With the unflinching bravery of a Hip Hop feminist, Bettina L. Love confronts the damaging effects of Hip Hop on young Black girls, while loving Hip Hop and articulating how it reflects the racism, capitalism, sexism, and patriarchy of America.» (Elaine Richardson, The Ohio State University; Author of ‘Hiphop Literacies’)
«Bettina L. Love’s unique stance is bold and a critical conversation starter. We travel with the author from Rochester, New York to Atlanta, Georgia, making stops along the way to deconstruct the media’s role in contemporary Hip Hop, address the consumption of Hip Hop by Black girls, explore the role of the South on Hip Hop, and meet seven amazing young women who take us on this starkly honest journey. This book is a beautiful piece of scholarship.» (Christopher Emdin, Columbia University; Author of ‘Urban Science Education for the Hip-Hop Generation’)

About the Author

Bettina L. Love is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Elementary and Social Studies at the University of Georgia. Her research focuses on the ways in which urban youth negotiate Hip Hop music and culture to form social, cultural and political identities. A continuing thread of her scholarship involves exploring new ways of thinking about urban education and culturally relevant pedagogical approaches for urban learners. More specifically, she is interested in transforming urban classrooms through the use of non-traditional educational curricula (e.g., Hip Hop pedagogy, media literacy, Hip Hop feminism and popular culture). Building on that theme, Dr. Love also has a passion for studying the school experiences of queer youth, along with race and equality in education. Her work has appeared in numerous books and journals, including Gender ForumEducational Studies, and RaceGender and Class.

Admittedly, I began reading this text with excitement because my friend, a black female in the academy, is its author. Thus, my support for the text was rooted in an activist agenda that says I must honor, celebrate, promote and bear witness to the success, the achievements of black female scholars. I cannot profess to be a serious fan of hip-hop, so I imagined the point of disconnect would emerge when the text would begin lauding lyrical content with which I was first of all unfamiliar and with which I had a strained relationship at best. But, Hip Hop's Li'l Sistas Speak does a lot more than that.

This work is a pedagogical masterpiece because it promotes an educational practice by showing how it is done; it is "good teaching" while it attempts to advocate "good teaching." This is particularly important because as Ladson-Billings laments about culturally responsive teaching, often teacher educators are forced to respond to the question, "Yes, but how do we do it?" This text is intellectual graffiti--it paints a rich historical, theoretical, and socio political portrait of lil sistas, big sistas, hip hop and place on a taboo tapestry. (I emphasize place because, while Dr. Love's examination is located in Atlanta, the southern milieu like any geographic space is textualized.) It is a politicized art form that is interrupting our perceptions of normal, clean, and sanitized. In this work, Dr. Love argues that traditionally white spaces (i.e. classrooms) must now be marked, tagged, disrupted with, by, and for the outsider voices that simultaneously create and consume, revel and decry, love and hate hip hop. Like graffiti that doesn't necessarily lend itself to clean, definitive lines or singular points of focus, this text blurs the boundaries purported by notions of researcher objectivity.
