Confronting Misogynoir in Hip-Hop | Live TV Broadcast

23 May @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Hip-Hop has arguably centered the male gaze since its birth 50 years ago, leading to hypersexualized and stereotypical depictions of Black women, marked by disdain and dehumanization. In critically examining this pattern, Moya Bailey coined the term ‘misogynoir’ in 2008 – a term that encapsulates the unique discrimination Black women face that intertwines misogyny and racism.

In recent years, women have been taking the reins of their Hip-Hop narratives, but the debates arise: Are their portrayals empowering, or cloaked exploitations?

This dialogue extends beyond music, spotlighting the broader societal insensitivity and distrust towards Black women, especially those experiencing gender-based aggression and sexual exploitation within Hip-Hop and beyond. In this #BHeard Town Hall, we ask if there’s a connection between the representations of Black women in Hip-Hop and the perception and treatment of Black women as a whole.

Join us in this critical conversation on the role of Hip-Hop in shaping perceptions and realities of Black women’s lives.
