Join us on Friday, March 25th at 4 PM EST for an Afternoon Tertulía: Reggaetón, Race, and Cultural Politics. Let’s explore Puerto Rican contributions to reggaetón, a musical genre that has reached worldwide attention and transformed the music scene and popular culture for the past few decades. Using an intersectional approach to class, race, gender, and diasporic experiences, our group of panelists will guide us through the history of this Caribbean diaspora rooted revolution. Our panelist will be Julio Pabón (producer of the podcast, LOUD), Katelina “La Gata” Eccleston (reggaeton historian and producer of the podcast LOUD) and Omar Acosta (producer of Stretch And Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives). The event will be moderated by Dr. Petra Rivera Rideau, author of Remixing Reggaeton: The Cultural Politics of Race in Puerto Rico.
