The Blank Page: Literature, Hip-Hop and Freedom

MK Asante
In conversation with Jeff Chang, author and director, Institute for Diversity in the Arts, Stanford University

In MK Asante’s new memoir Buck, the award-winning writer, filmmaker, poet and professor scripts his rise from Philadelphia dealer and delinquent to the passionate and driven artist he is today. To share his powerful story of redemption, Asante sits down to rap with Jeff Chang, author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation, on how he was transformed by the most unconventional teachers and the freedom to create on the blank page.
