April 26: Catch-up day There is no extra reading. We will simply try to catch-up on any topics that we did not finish and discuss research paper progress. May 1: Hip Hop and the First Amendment PART 6: HIP HOP AND THE FIRST AMENDMENT First Amendment: The First Amendment will be studied through the lyrics of some of the more controversial artists. Should the advocating of what many deem inappropriate be considered music? The answer may not be addressed but the connection between the lyrics and the invocation of the law as the protector will be discussed. Speech: This section is designed to look at the concept of the Freedom of Speech. Since justice and freedom is engrained in our heads now, the reading here will be about speech vs. action.
