This innovative media-project is part of KIM’s empirical research. KIM is in Atlanta to investigate how the images in Commercial Hip Hop Music Videos influence late adolescents’ concepts of self (physical attractiveness, romantic appeal and behavior). Although the participants in the video didn’t solely ask questions about the images in Hip Hop Culture, a lot of the answers will spark the debate on Hip Hop culture as a powerful global force……..discussion topics for days;)……KIM will use parts of this clip for her talks at Georgia State University ( African-American studies department) and other venues.
