Author and professor Murali Balaji will discuss his book, Desi Rap: Hip Hop and South Asian America, on Thursday, April 9 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis. Desi Rap is a collection of essays from South Asian American activists, academics, and hip-hop artists that explores the genre as an expression of racial identity, class, status, gender, sexuality, racism and culture. Desi Rap speaks to the full complexity of immigrant and Asian American lives through the youth who are creating American culture through hip-hop solidarity through their discourse on race and ethnic identity. Balaji will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public.
