This event takes place during our exhibit "And the Beat Don't Stop: 50 Years of Hip-Hop." 

Chat and Chew is an ongoing series that occurs during the lunch hour both in person and virtually via Facebook live. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch and listen to our guest expert speak on a topic. 

Our special guest: Dr. Marquese McFerguson, award winning poet, Hip-Hop scholar and an assistant professor of intercultural communication at Florida Atlantic University, will discuss his top five albums and their cultural significance. 
Dr. McFerguson's bio from his FAU web page says: Dr. Marquese McFerguson is an Assistant Professor of Intercultural Communication within the School of Communication and Multimedia Studies at Florida Atlantic University. His scholarship and teaching examine how individuals in society communicate, perform and (re)imagine identity across a diverse number of cultural intersections including race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. His research agenda is centered on building bridges of understanding across cultures by examining how racialized identities are produced/portrayed by media makers and interpreted/ performed by media audiences. His research about representation and media-created scripts is guided by feminist, aesthetic, and narrative sensibilities and situated within the interdisciplinary fields of Communication Studies and African American Studies. Dr. McFerguson is also an award-winning slam poet and teaching artist who has performed at academic institutions and performance venues throughout the United States and United Kingdom.
