FUSION gives you the opportunity to read a private conversation between Civil Right Leader Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. and Hip Hop Legend MC Lyte. This captivating conversation examines how the Civil Rights Movement helped with the emergence of Hip Hop and how Hip Hop continues to help the survival of the Civil Rights Movement – with a rare focus on the roles women played throughout this unique era.
The interdependence of the Civil Rights Movement to Hip Hop is unquestionable; hence FUSION uncovers unknown historical stories that show the FUSION of these worlds. FUSION is that rare conversation turned to life – with an interpersonal look at two worlds: Civil Rights & Hip Hop, colliding in a riveting dialogue between two historic and lyrical leaders. A portion of the proceeds benefit #EDUCATEOURMEN.
