    @ ease- here’s a synopsis of the documentary I saw…


    (San Francisco, CA)-BLACKING UP: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race and Identity explores racial identity through the lens of hip-hop music and culture. The film focuses in particular on the tensions that surround white identification with hip-hop. Popularly referred to by derogatory terms such as “wannabe” or “wigger,” the white person who identifies with hip-hop often invokes heated responses. For some, it is an example of cultural progress – a movement toward a color-blind America. For others, it’s just another case of cultural theft and mockery – a repetition of a racist past.

    BLACKING UP: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race and Identity probes these different responses, constructing a dialogue on race that draws parallels from American history and incorporates the perspectives of leading cultural critics, hip-hop industry pioneers, well-known rappers, an assortment of young fans, and hip-hop hopefuls. BLACKING UP: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race and Identity will premiere on PBS stations nationwide beginning in January 2010 (check local listings).

    Against the unique backdrop of American popular music, BLACKING UP: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race and Identityexplores racial identity: where it comes from, why certain personas are attractive to white suburban youth, and what authenticity means to the communities being emulated in hip-hop.

    In contrast to most popular discussions, the film puts questions of white identification with hip-hop in a historical context, which proves both educational and informative.

    Showing the parallels between the figure of the white hip-hopper and previous incarnations of white identification with black culture, BLACKING UP: Hip-Hop’s Remix of Race and Identity highlights a lineage that includes blackface performers such as Al Jolson, jazz figures like the “hipster” and the “white negro,” and rock-and-roll icons like Elvis Presley. White participants in the film discuss where they see their place in hip-hop, reflecting earnestly on how they have been affected by the words “wigger” or “wannabe.” Black participants debate what white adoption of hip-hop might mean today, considering past instances of appropriation and mockery of black cultural expression. All participants’ praises and criticisms contribute to an understanding of how race functions in America today.

    grandmaster caz was the tour guide/bus driver in the PBS documentary:


    Hush Tours are the worlds only hip hop experiences that use celebrity talent as the guides for each tour.

    Founded in 2000 by Debra Harris, devout hip hop aficionado, ex-talent agent, and New York City licensed tour guide, Ms. Harris pioneers this genre with educational tours and experiences to the critical destinations past and present.

    “Our vision for this business was to create an interactive and comprehensive learning experience for all ages and nationalities. I really wanted to share the true inside story of the evolution of this music culture – ultimately helping people to learn what hip hop culture was and continues to be; ‘how’ it all started, where exactly it all began, who the influencers and influences were (and continue to be) that made this music lifestyle grow into what has become a $30 billion dollar business today”, states Ms. Harris.

    New York City is known to the world as the birthplace of hip hop. Preserving the roots of hip hop culture means teaching tour participants the true essence of this genre. This is precisely what we have done with our tours and experiences”, finishes Ms. Harris.

    Separating the facts from fiction are the actual celebrities from the day; Grandmaster Caz of the original Coldcrush Brothers, Kurtis Blow, Rahiem (The Furious Five) Reggie Reg, Mikey D, Ralph McDaniels, DJ Kool Herc are just some of the legends that tell the story of how hip hop began.

    “Using the actual music legends and pioneers of hip hop to tell the story is what is the most interesting aspect of our tours”, states Harris. “While we are a completely professional and licensed business ‘telling’ the story by the insiders who lived it is what makes our experiences truly different.”
