Gangsta rap: freedom of speech or bad influence?
Students from the Baltimore Urban Debate League will argue both sides of that question on Tuesday morning at Eastside District Court. District Court Judge Jeannie Hong is among those who will provide a legal response to their arguments. And Joanne Martin, president and co-founder of the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, will provide historical context on the role of rap and its influence on youth.
Wondering what to do with yourself while schools are closed for Election Day? The event is free and open to the public. It starts at 10 a.m. in Courtroom #6 at 1400 E. North Ave.
