  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
"Pimps Up, Ho's Down", A Lecture by Tracy Sharpley-Whiting      "Pimps Up, Ho's Down" pulls at the threads of the intricately knotted issues surrounding young black women and hip hop culture. What unravels for Tracy D. Sharpley-Whiting is a new, and problematic, politics of gender. In this fascinating and forceful lecture, Sharpley-Whiting, a feminist writer who is a member of the hip hop generation, interrogates the complexities of young black women's engagement with a culture that is masculinist, misogynistic, and frequently mystifying.
