September 30- Rap Dad: Juan Vidal, Hanif Abdirraqib, & Carvell Wallace in conversation

Join us in welcoming Juan Vidal, writer for Remezcla, VIBE, among others, for his debut book, Rap Dad, part-memoir/part-cultural critique on fatherhood in hip-hop culture through the Latino lens. Rap Dad follows Juan growing up in 1980s gritty Miami to becoming a parent, focusing on how that reinvents cultural perception and identity. Slam poet Hanif Abdirraqib and New Yorker culture critic writer Carvell Wallace will join Juan in a popping and timely discussion about Rap Dad, and on hip-hop, race, and redefining masculinity within fatherhood in Black and Latino experiences.
