Why Do Palestinians Choose Hip Hop?

The National Arab American Times, Audio, Ray Hanania Interviewing Suzanne Manneh Posted: May 30, 2008

Ray Hanania, publisher of The National Arab American Times, interviews Suzanne Manneh (NAM writer) about her article, Palestinian Youth Express Themselves Through Hip-Hop. Manneh explains how hip-hop has become a creative form of social protest for the Palestinian Diaspora. She says that Palestinians, especially youth, do not identify with the stereotypical protests and political tirades, but instead, choose something positive and artistic for self-expression. This hip-hop emphasizes the Palestinian struggle, but also focuses on the appreciation of hip-hop as art and promotes contribution from people of all backgrounds.
