Emerson Research Grant/ “All Aboard Productions”

June 20, 2013

Hey everyone! I am currently working on a documentary film called “Dear Hip-Hop” through Hamilton College’s Emerson Research Grant. The documentary explores the evolution of the music genre, Hip-Hop and its portrayal of the African American male figure. I will be conducting “street-interviews” and “in the studio” interviews with some artists in the Hip-Hop industry, in hopes of gaining more insight for my project. The 10-minute documentary can be visited on YouTube on September 1st. Hope you all enjoy! Go Big Green.
