Study/Discussion Questions for December 6 1. On page 91 and 92, Collins states that African Americans used rap and hip-hop music in the 1980s as a form of resistance. She states that "black youth used rap and hip-hop to protest the closing door of opportunity in their lives and to claim their humanity in the face of dehumanization or racial segregation and ghettoization." Why do you think hip-hop music united young African Americans in the 1980s and do you think rap music in 2008 is also seen as a form of resistance like Patricia Collins discussed? 2.
