Anti-sexist activist and filmmaker, Byron Hurt, speaks about his film "Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes," where he takes an in-depth look at the representation of manhood and masculinity in hip-hop culture. He examines how creative genius, within mainstream hip-hop, collides with misogyny, violence and homophobia, exposing the complex implications these issues have in the construction of masculinity, especially among young people of color.
