Fight the Power examines a multitude of complex social, racial and artistic issues.
Frontman for the politically-minded, and commercially successful, rap group Public Enemy, rapper Chuck D discusses the role of heroes and role models in the black community, Hollywood's negative images of blacks, the effect of gangsta rap, its images on the country's youth and the war between east and west coast rappers that may have spawned the murder of Tupac Shakur, the role of athletes and entertainers in eroding and strengthening values, and other vital contemporary concerns.
Candid, thoughtful, and contemporary, Fight the Power, the first substantial book about Hip Hop which is written by a rapper, offers students a look into the culture of hip hop and the future of Black culture.
"Chuck D is the towering artist of Hip-Hop culture....His voice challenges all of us!"
--Cornel West, author of Race Matters
