          Jeff Chang's Bio and Speech Topics: http://www.thelavinagency.com/speaker-jeff-chang.html In this clip, Jeff Chang, the author of 'Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation', talks about the impact hip-hop culture has had on the world of youth politics. Hip-hop culture -- which encompasses music, dance, visual art and fashion -- sprung from the marginalized youth of the Bronx in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Over time, as the messages and ideals of hip-hop bubbled up into the mainstream, the art movement has inspired grassroots political movements, and empowered youth around the world to make their voices heard. "In hip-hop," says Chang, "culture changes, and eventually there's a desire to gain power out of that." Today, we're seeing just how powerful that change can be.
