Greg Tate in Conversation: Hip Hop

Greg Tate was a staff writer at The Village Voice from 1987-2003. Tate’s writings on culture and politics have also been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Artforum, Rolling Stone, VIBE, Premiere, Essence, Suede, The Wire, One World, Downbeat, and JazzTimes. Tate was recently acknowledged by The Source magazine as one of the ‘Godfathers of Hiphop Journalism’ for his groundbreaking work on the genre’s social, political, economic and cultural implications in the period when most pundits considered it a fad. For his Detroit presentation, Greg Tate will have a conversation with Piper Carter, founder of the Foundation of Women in Hip Hop, and Bryce Detroit, music producer and founder of Detroit Recordings.
