I hope to host a collective analysis of the ethics of the black male body, epitomized in the rap villain. I would like to lead an open-ended discussion that analyzes black self-performance in rap music—that text which records the black body. An analysis of the black body as such can prompt a construction of a modified ethical model that can then be applied in the realm of the political. I plan to prepare a short playlist that I’ll use to focus each meeting, one track at a time, as well as short excerpts of critical texts (optional reading) that I’ll use to guide a discussion of the music. But the structure of the Assembly is open. Some artists of interest: Cella Dwellas, Notorious BIG, Earl Sweatshirt, ONYX, Method Man, etc.

GOAL: To refine discussion as a mode of critical collective activity. To study music as a text. To connect the political to the ethical. To study blackness. Final project (flexible, depending on group): a collectively-made blog or some online resource that both documents our findings and activates new engagements with the Assembly, effectively furthering its lifespan and opening up access to a greater public.

IDEAL NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 3 people minimum
