Course Description

Kendrick Lamar. Lemonade. Jay-Z. Black Messiah. Janalle Monae. We know these names and titles from playlists, videos, and Instagram. They shape our politics, our fashion, our style, and our attitudes. But they also open up questions of the sacred, perhaps even the possibility of the sacred itself. By engaging hip-hop culture, as well as its deeper history in spirituals, gospel, and R&B, this course introduces students to the critical study of religion and culture.
