Essence's Women in Hip-hop Panel

I've been remiss in not reporting back on that panel from last week, but the thing is: it got so heated and hectic I didn't know how to sum it up effectively, except maybe by quoting the opening lines of Yeats' "Second Coming."

Luckily Julianne pretty much had it covered, and her rundown is supplemented by funkdigi, lynne and clyde. Hashim also posted a chat between himself, Funkdigi and me, though I'm not sure I said anything useful there.

Props once again to the organizers, especially Akiba Solomon.. This event wasn't exactly the smoothest, but you can't clean out a closet without getting your room a little messy. Hopefully we'll keep that door open and continue the dialogue, cuz we obviously need it.
