Essence's "Take Back the Music" Panel

Some have been inclined to scoff at Essence's efforts on this issue, but I'm not mad at them. In the words of the great Dan Charnas, "any raised voice is good."

So I'm aiming to be there tomorrow, although I do have to ask: why, why, why Stanley Crouch?.

Essence is telling women to “take back the music” as its reporters and editors explore how denigrating lyrics and sex-saturated visuals dominate pop culture and create stereotypes influencing not only how young girls see themselves, but how black women are beginning to be perceived in other countries. Join the conversation.

Co-presented with the Utopia Network
