CHIRP Music Book Club - Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

RSVP to this event

Transistor
5224 N. Clark
Chicago, IL

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE & TIME

Join CHIRP on Sunday, July 23rd, for the next installment of our bimonthly book group, covering Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation by Jeff Chang. 

Can't Stop Won't Stop is a powerful cultural and social history of the end of the American century, and a provocative look into the new world that the hip-hop generation created.

Forged in the fires of the Bronx and Kingston, Jamaica, hip-hop became the Esperanto of youth rebellion and a generation-defining movement. In a post-civil rights era defined by deindustrialization and globalization, hip-hop crystallized a multiracial, polycultural generation's worldview, and transformed American politics and culture. But that epic story has never been told with this kind of breadth, insight, and style.

Based on original interviews with DJs, b-boys, rappers, graffiti writers, activists, and gang members, with unforgettable portraits of many of hip-hop's forebears, founders, and mavericks, including DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, and Ice Cube, Can't Stop Won't Stop chronicles the events, the ideas, the music, and the art that marked the hip-hop generation's rise from the ashes of the 60's into the new millennium.

ALSO NOTE: We have a new poll open to select books for 'series 2' which will meet quarterly at Transistor starting in September. Please submit your vote here: 2017 Music Book Club Poll
