As the world waits for Chris Brown to appear in court today to be arraigned on two felony charges connected to the dating violence incident with R & B singer Rihanna, NewsOne.com sat down with a handful of journalists, scholars and activist who have had their finger on the pulse of hip-hop generation’s gender wars for much of the last decade: Tracy Sharpley-Whiting (author, Pimps Up, Hos Down and director of Black Studies at Vanderbilt University), Joan Morgan (author of When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost), and Newsone’s own senior editor Bakari Kitwana (Underground Current and director of Rap Sessions). This was moderated by Mark Anthony Neal (Left of Black and author of New Blackman).

The debate got heated on all sides as the group challenged young fans and the mainstream media and prepared for the Does Hip-Hop Hate Women? townhall meeting this Thursday April 9 at Connecticut College.
